TREVI Foundations Nigeria LTD, a company controlled by Gruppo TREVI, has won new special foundations contracts in West Africa.

The most important contract, subdivided into two consecutive phases, is for the foundations of the Raised Metropolitan Railway of Port Harcourt which will cover a total distance of circa 19 km and significantly improve movement around the city, which is witnessing substantial demographic and economic growth.
The contract, commissioned by a client of the highest standing, is mainly for preliminary soil investigation, design and construction of the special foundations of the Metropolitan Railway with the installation of deep bored piles. The project will last about 30 months starting from January 2010.

The CEO, Mr Gianluigi Trevisani, commented: "These new contracts confirm the esteem in which Gruppo TREVI is held in the region; this has been achieved through our long-term and strong presence in the region. These most recent contracts represent, in particular, recognition of the technical and managerial ability acquired by TREVI Foundations Nigeria LTD, established in 1977 and representing an example of complete integration between the Italian and local personnel of the company."
