Munich, April the18th, 2013.
As every year, The Esta (European Association of abnormal road transport and mobile cranes) award dinner party awards the best lifting and transport operations carried out during the year before. Fagioli, with great satisfaction, was awarded for the category 'Innovation and Development "for the transport and installation of 12.600 ton caissons for the Venice Mo.s.e. project (an integrated defense system consisting of rows of mobile gates which are intended to isolate the Venetian Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea when the tide rises above 110 cm), in collaboration with Imp. Costr. Ing. E. Mantovani Spa, Magistrate alle acque di Venezia e Consorzio Venezia Nuova
Fagioli received a second award for the best “SPMT transport job of the year” for an operation performed in a petrochemical plant in Brazil through the joint venture TRANSDATA FAGIOLI DO BRASIL (TFB). The most challenging aspect was the transport of 3 mts wide modules due to the height of the module and to the fact that the COG was at about 11 meters, considering that the maximum tipping angle was 3.7 degrees during transport activities at manufacturing area and 11 degrees during the 8 kilometers transport journey.
Two awards that make us extremely proud! In the next weeks we will publish some pictures of the event!
