Foundations specialist Trevi has signed a number of contracts which are significant both in terms of the technology to be applied in the projects and the scale of the work involved in the context of the Italian market.
The first contract, worth €31M (£25.6M), involves work on the foundations and ground consolidation for the high speed section of the Florence railway junction which will be built by the NODAVIA consortium (established by Coopsette and Ergon).
Trevi is also engaged in the final stages of the infrastructural work relating to the rail traffic flow improvements of the same project, which began a couple of years ago.
The technological advances made in directional drilling have also led to the awarding of work currently in progress aimed at permanently securing the site of national interest in Manfredonia, the site of an RSU (Solid Urban Waste) landfill where Trevi is involved in the construction of an impermeable screen around the perimeter and along the base of the site.
This is the first time in Italy that this kind of eco-environmental problem has been tackled using this type of technical solution, which will protect the water table from contamination by sealing it off from potential pollution through seepage from the landfill site.
Trevi managing director Cesare Trevisani said: ”The acquisition of these latest contracts is confirmation that even in a market as competitive and tough as the Italian market, the Trevi Group continues to be the point of reference for this type of operation and for any work that requires the most advanced technology and experience, but which above all also demands guaranteed results, respect for the environment and reliable completion times”.
