Trevi awarded motorway foundation works in Algeria
TREVI Algerie, the historic branch of the Trevi Group in Algeria, is engaged, on behalf of the general contractor MIkol and the customer Agence des Autoroutes (ADA), in the foundation works for the new motorway link Port of Oran to the East-West motorway, in north-western area of the North African country.
The project of the motorway junction connecting the port of Oran to the 1st ring road of over 8 km, starts from the extension of the port of Oran, and aims to give access to the already dense traffic, which has significantly increased. The project itself is characterized by major works, viaducts and tunnels. The highway starts at the port of Oran at PK 0 + 600.
Trevi’s work consists in the construction of the piers of the viaduct using foundation piles with a diameter of 1,200 mm for a maximum depth of 46.50 meters. The piles were made 100% with drilling mud and are equipped with tubes for sonic auscultation.
For these interventions, Trevi Algerie used pile machines, such as the Soilmec SR-45 and Soimec SR-60 and also the Soilmec SC-80 service crane.
Trevi Group is a worldwide leader in the field of soil engineering (special foundations, soil consolidation, recovery of polluted sites), in the design and marketing of specialized technologies in the sector and in the construction of automated, underground and multi-storey car parks.
The Group was established in Cesena in 1957 and currently has around 70 companies and, with its dealers and distributors, is present in 90 countries.
The Trevi Group consists of Trevi, which carries out special foundations and soil consolidation works for large infrastructure projects (subways, dams, ports and docks, bridges, railway and highway lines, industrial and civil buildings), and Soilmec, which designs, manufactures and markets machinery, systems and services for underground engineering.
The parent company (Trevi – Finanziaria Industriale S.p.A.) has been listed on the Milan stock exchange since July 1999. Trevifin is listed on Euronext Milan that supersedes the old term MTA, as a result of the market rebranding activities that followed the acquisition of Borsa Italiana by Euronext N.V.
