Pavia, March 2017 – “This is a very important experience and a step through a training process that starts from a theoretical design basis and then develops through practical experience”, said Marco Laurini, President of Laurini Officine Meccaniche at the end of a busy training day at the construction site of Snam Rete Gas, located in Garlasco, near Pavia. The works began in September 2016 and are due to be completed in the first months of 2019; the new 56 inches methane pipeline from Cervignano to Mortara will be 30 km long and will be used together with the old 48 inches line to increase the flow rate of the whole gas pipeline.
This is a great opportunity for Laurini Officine Meccaniche, a company that strongly believes in the value of its staff’s know-how, which is being constantly improved through training in order to be able to provide a tailor made and country specific support to its customers. Laurini’s team is mainly made by young people, the average age being around 30 years old, and they stand out for their working philosophy and great passion for their job. Learning from experience is fundamental to create versatile projects and to customize them to fulfill the customers’ requirements, thus providing a customer support that involves first of all the machines designers, whose first goal is to achieve a standard of excellence.
Laurini’s team was hosted by Max Streicher Italia, the contractor of this project, currently working on lot 2 (Mortara – Rognano), which stretches through Ticino Park. The two companies have been working together for a long time, thanks to a strong relationship of mutual trust between the CEO Giovanni Muriana and the site manager Marco Cavalli, who made this visit possible.
Five of Laurini’s machines were deployed on the site: a Hammer crushing padding machines, which laid the crushed materials from the edge of the excavation site into the pit; a Grub remote controlled crushing machine, designed to operate directly inside the trench leaving behind an uniform layer, a Vulcano 2.0 vibrating screen set up on atruckedself, sieving the ground to extract as much material as possible to cover up the pipe, a Muletrax 3000 multipurpose tractor, equipped to carry the pipes and a Muletrax 2300, used as a support vehicle during the welding of the joints.
A complex task, as the terrain changes from clay to sand to gravel, but Laurini machines were able to accomplish it, while respecting the local flora and fauna also through the use of eco-friendly insulating barriers, made by hay bales, which greatly reduced the noise levels.
“We have always done our best to support our customers with excellence, innovation and versatility. We want to be a proactive working partner, with an in-depth knowledge of the needs created by a specific context” Marco Laurini said. “That is why we organize visits to the construction site, in order to personally see the solutions created by our designers and to fully understand the difficulties that a machine has to deal with on its operation site. They are also a motivational input for our team. The goal is to prevent problems, anticipate market requests, constantly improve our products and be able to offer innovative and tailor-made solutions”.
