The Trevi division, specialized in ground engineering services, through its foreign subsidiaries, has recently been awarded several contracts.

Among the primary we highlight:

Civil engineering works and special foundations for the realization of the Bangkok metro in Thailand. These works are part of an important project for the improvement of the metro system of the city and will require the execution of special foundations with the best technology available on the market. The contract includes more specifically the execution of containment diaphragm walls for stations executed with special equipment produced by the Soilmec division, jet grouting operation, punctures and injections for the consolidation of the soil. The works have been initiated and the total duration of the project is approximately 18 months. This important contract confirms the active presence of the Group in the Far East market.

Works of special foundations in West Africa for the execution of major infrastructure and industrial plants.

In Latin America important engineering works will be carried out. In Venezuela, in particular, the job will involve the construction of anchored diaphragms, special foundations, drilling & jet grouting dedicated to commercial infrastructure. On the Atlantic-Pacific wharf of the Panama Canal bored piles and cement injections works will be carried out in order to consolidate the foundation soil.

The CEO Stefano Trevisani commented: "The recent acquisitions of the TREVI division confirm the potential development of market infrastructure in geographical areas of historical interest to the Group. The construction works of the metro of Bangkok testify the continuing interest to carry out the civil works of urban transport in areas such as the Far East. TREVI Group, which has a longstanding presence in this area, continues to expand its internationalization bringing the experience of the engineering works of the highest level even in distant areas. In West Africa, we continue to acquire new orders for the creation of important infrastructure in support of the significant signs of growth in the field of special foundations. Latin America continues to represent one of the geographical areas with the greatest potential for growth. The high flexibility of our business model proves the ability of the TREVI Group to seize the best business opportunities in various parts of the world. Recent acquisitions allow us to keep a robust backlog which creates a solid base for the Group's growth in the coming years. "
