    Teresa Guerra

    R&D Manager at Tenova HYL

    I started working as an intern in the Research & Development department and, since then, I have jumped back and forth from Operations and R&D for many years, and spent a brief time in the commercial area.

    Now, I am the Director of R&D in HYL. As part of my duties, I am responsible of R&D activities and in charge of the Technical Project Managers (TPM’s): Their function is to be the project’s liaison between client, vendors, partners and our engineering department.

    R&D is not an easy task when you want to make improvements to a mature technology; however recently, the use of alternative sources of reducing gases and the use of lower grade ores make us face new brainteasers to solve. 

    I feel motivated but with a lot of responsibility having a very young but result-oriented team that needs guidance, support but above all leadership and motivation to continue growing and be the future technical leaders that our company needs in this shifting market in the coming years.

    I always remark to my team the importance of develop or improve their resilience; a professional competence well needed in any job.

    Perla Garza

    Project Engineer at Tenova HYL

    Every day at Tenova is different and we are constantly faced with new challenges and opportunities, because no two DRI plants are the same. This has given me the opportunity to learn and develop new skills both personally and professionally.

    As a TPM, my main responsibility is to be the technical liaison between Tenova and the final customer. One day, you will find me assisting a client with technical solutions or helping in the development of new suppliers. Another day, you might see me translating customer requirements to our engineering department, creating specifications and technical documents, and ensuring all of my projects are on track.

    I love the dynamism of my job, which provides a constant source of learning and keeps my daily role exciting. Another point that I like about working in Tenova is the climate of trust and freedom we are given that drives us employees to grow and feel passionate about our careers. The full support of my direct manager and colleagues make working at Tenova an unmatchable experience.

  • BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

    Passion is the key. It’s what drives us to create innovative technologies and solutions for our customers. Our business development people explore and identify new opportunities in existing and potential markets, then our cross-functional team evaluates, develops and tailors an appropriate business model to each. This kind of collaborative effort, driven by individual passion, is what helps our company maintain its leadership position in the metals industry.

    A short journey of more than 20 years, that’s how it feels to me. Working at Tenova isn’t for everyone, yet you will enjoy and succeed if your thing is falling in love with your job. It may be called passion, but it’s more the tenacious nature of people we have around, which is passed along to us.

    We are a fundamental part of our society’s progress and a solid root to the improvement of the planet’s conditions. Tenova is the company with the largest portfolio of green technologies for metal manufacturing, which is at the same time an incredible honor and a great responsibility. 

    At Tenova, we can’t succeed without innovation. Our novel technologies and processes do not necessarily come from basic research, nor fundamental science, but rather present themselves to us during the strenuous development and continuous improvement activities we perform every single day. This is why going to work in the morning is exciting: we know that all these incredible activities are waiting for us, and it is up to us to share our knowledge, expertise and products with the rest of the world. 

  • R&D

    In our business, identifying new, more effective ways of doing things takes more than just economic investment. It requires strong, bright and passionate R&D people who can bring those investments to life. In our R&D department, we focus on crafting and developing cutting-edge, sustainable technological solutions that will help our clients achieve their business goals; solutions that increase efficiency and productivity while having the least possible environmental impact.

    Christian Wuppermann

    Head of R&D and Process Engineering at Tenova LOI Thermprocess

    Since almost ten years I am part of the R&D team. My goal is to improve our technologies in a creative, innovative and agile way. I am very glad that we have sustainable solutions for almost all our products in our portfolio. In that way Tenova can play an active role in decarburization of the metals industry and a climate-neutral society.

    Besides the technological skills, the development of the professional growth was always encouraged. I participated in the Tenova High Tech Program that fosters managerial skills and interaction in intercultural teams. Within this initiative I had the opportunity to connect with people in the Tenova group all over the world, especially in Italy and China.

    Developing these skills, my path towards the position as R&D manager was enabled. After three years in this position, I can contribute to our innovation strategy and in this way to a successful future of Tenova and a sustainable future for metals industry.

    Over the years, I have been able to participate in Tenova's growth and technological development, which have always been focused on solutions that limit environmental impact, and the results are excellent: in fact, some of our technologies represent the future in the field of decarburization. 

    At this moment in history, "selling" plants that help to reduce emissions drastically and make the environment better makes me even more excited to be part of a team, which in some way makes the world a better place.
