In the United States TREVIICOS, Trevi’s US branch, acquired an order for the foundation works on the Northeast Boundary Tunnel (NEBT) in Washington DC. The NEBT will be a deep large-scale tunnel which increases the capacity of the present sewage system and lessens the frequency, strength and impact of flooding, while at the same time improving the water quality of the Anacostia River. The tunnel will range between a depth of 15 and 48 meters, with a length of over 8,220 meters. The joint venture Salini Impregilo and S.A. Healy awarded TREVIICOS the construction of excavation supports for the deep wells and the surface structures, in addition to the improvement of the soil for the construction of the wells, the surface structures and the accesses connecting the tunnel to the wells.
In Kuwait, a contract for the foundation works for the construction of 8 silos for the collection and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG) was acquired. The large silos, each with a capacity of 225,000 cubic metres, will be located at the new maritime exports terminal of the al-Zour refinery commissioned by Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation (KNPC), currently under construction and located approx. 90 KM south of the capital, close to the border with Saudi Arabia.
Again in the Middle East (in Dubai), Trevi will be involved in the construction of special foundations for what will be the longest covered ski slope in the world, located in the new One Mall of Meydan. This unique project will be a center-point of Dubai and UAE tourism ahead of Expo 2020. The One Mall is in fact the lynchpin of an imposing urban development plan, located between Meydan and Al Khail Road and not far from the city center and earmarked to become the main tourist attraction for Expo 2020.
In Nigeria, Trevi’s branch was awarded the foundation works for the construction of a number of silos in the Port Harcourt zone and commercial-office constructions in the Lagos metropolitan area.
The Chief Executive Officer of Trevi Group, Stefano Trevisani, commented: “Thanks to a consolidated presence in many regions, recognised experience and technological capacity, Trevi continues to play a major role internationally. The recent order intake, particularly in the United States, is testament to Trevi’s significant capacity to tackle complex technological challenges. Although the overseas market continues to present development opportunities, the same may not be said for Italy where for a number of years now stagnation - if not outright recession - for large infrastructural work investment has impacted the entire sector”.
