The Trevi Group donates a water exploration and drilling facility.
A plant for the research and exploitation of water. This is the donation of the Trevi Group, the world leader in the field of technologies and services for underground engineering, in favour of "Acqua è Vita" (Water is Life), the Treviso humanitarian association.
The no-profit organization is committed, along with Fondazione Betlemme, to the project for the development of water resources in southern Cameroon, a republic of equatorial Africa that is afflicted by the serious and endemic problem of water scarcity.
Through the Social Value, a project specifically designed to promote and support, at local, national and international level, solidarity initiatives especially in favour of children and the weakest sections of the population, the Trevi Group has made available a G-8 drilling rig to the volunteers of the Treviso humanitarian association (i.e., the Province where the PSM production unit specialized in the design of micro-drilling systems is based). The unit is a Mercedes 1722 truck provided with a percussion drill capable of reaching a depth of over 200 meters.
The truck along with the drill rig was officially delivered to the people in charge of the association "Acqua è vita" on Sunday, July 8th, 2012, during the special ceremony scheduled in the morning at their headquarter in the Province of Treviso. After the celebration of the Mass, the blessing of the equipment and the speech of the institutional authorities, the plant was adequately prepared for the trip to Cameroon.
The Trevi Group has always shown a concrete interest and direct involvement with regard to the issue of drinking water research, as well as to the restoration of discarded wells and the formation of the local population to keep them productive. In fact, in Africa, where the Trevi Group has been operating since 1967, the Group has been directly involved - through its Social Value - and for a few years now in the Water for Life project, which aims to alleviate the pressing need for potable water in the regions of Uganda and South Sudan.
