Laurini has been involved in the construction of a Snam Rete Gas pipeline (Italy). Work began in September 2016 and is due to be complete in the first months of 2019. The new 56 in. methane pipeline that will run from Cervignano to Mortara will be 30 km long and will be used together with the old 48 in. line to increase the flowrate of the whole gas pipeline.

According to Marco Laurini, President of Laurini Officine Meccaniche (Laurini), in order to make business grow bigger, you must make the staff grow better. The company believes that learning from experience is fundamental for creating versatile projects and to customise them to fulfill the customers' requirements, thus providing a customer support that involves the machines designers, whose first goal is to achieve a standard of excellence.

The Snam Rete Gas project has been a great opportunity for Laurini, a company that believes in the value of its staff's know-how, which is continuously being improved through training such that it can provide tailormade and country-specific support to its customers.

Laurini's team was hosted by Max Streicher Italia, the contractor currently working on Lot 2 (Mortara-Rognano) of this Cervignano-Mortara project.

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.
