Grupo Albanesi is an Argentine private equity business group which offers a wide range of products and services in the energetic sector. Its capability to execute and develop new projects has led to constant growth and has helped Grupo Albanesi established itself as a key player in the energy market.

It was founded in Rosario, Santa Fe, in 1929 by Rafael G. Albanesi, who started the commercial activities in Buenos Aires in the year 1912. The firm was originally one of the key players in the commercialization of sanitary products and it soon became one of the main companies in the country

Further down the line it incorporated to its main activities the construction of water networks and gas pipelines. Due to its magnitude, this become one the main activities.

During the 80s the Company strengthened its position in the construction of gas pipelines with 600 km installed in the province of Santa Fe. This is still one of the largest and most important constructions in the area.

The deregulation of the gas industry in Argentina allowed Grupo Albanesi to operate for the first time in the commercialization of natural gas in the domestic market in March 1994. Ever since it has emerged as one of the key players in Argentina, experiencing sustained growth in traded volumes, number of clients and sales.

Grupo Albanesi obtained the license as a free agent with the creation of the Electronic Gas Market (MEG); the license allows Grupo Albanesi to buy and sell gas in the spot market on behalf of and to the order of third parties. Grupo Albanesi carried out the first spot operation in the MEG market.

Grupo Albanesi entered into the power generation business in 2004 when it acquired a share in the thermal power plant Luis Piedra Buena S.A (620 MW), located in Bahía Blanca, province of Buenos Aires.

Following its first experience in the energy sector, Grupo Albanesi developed new investment projects, with a focus on the installation of new turbines, aiming to increase its market share in the power generation business. As a result of this, the total installed capacity reached and surpassed 1,500 MW.
