TREVI Group has been informed by the Italian Embassy in Baghdad about the press release issued by the office of the Prime Minister of Iraq following today’s Council of Ministers: "The Council of Ministers decided during today’s meeting to award the contract for the urgent maintenance of the Mosul dam to the Italian company TREVI under the terms of the offer submitted by the company. The finalization of the contract will take place under the supervision of the Ministry of Water Resources. The award of the contract, due to the procedure of urgency related to the conditions of the dam, will not follow the normal tendering procedures and rules of the ministry.”
"An Official and direct confirmation to the company of what has been written on the press release _ commented Stefano Trevisani, CEO of TREVI _ would allow us to move to the finalization and signing of the contract. It is difficult to forecast the timing, but it should be a matter of weeks.”
As previously pointed out TREVI Group was the only company qualified in the running for the award of the first phase of maintenance works of the dam and the process of negotiation of the terms and conditions of the contract with the Iraqi government had already entered into its final phases. TREVI Group, which has over 56 years of experience in soil engineering, is recognized as a world leader in the consolidation and commissioning of dam safety, as well as in maritime works, in subways and environmental safeguard measures.
TREVI has performed more than 170 dam specialized maintenance works around the world and especially in South America and North America, where the US Army Corps of Engineers has committed to rehabilitate several large dams in the country. The experience but especially the development of state of the art technological solutions have enabled TREVI to carry out the works for the safety of the embankment LPV-111 of New Orleans which with its collapse had ignited the great flood of Hurricane Katrina.
