The Italian airport of Olbia on the Costa Smeralda is one of three international terminals on the island of Sardinia and it counts the highest number of passengers arriving from abroad, especially during the summer months. Famous for its crystal clear emerald sea, the Costa Smeralda is considered the most exclusive locality in the north east of Sardinia, with its luxury homes, social events and a landscape of inestimable naturalistic value.
Between February and March, Olbia airport was closed to air traffic for just over a month, for resurfacing work and the construction of a 300-metre runway extension, plus redevelopment of the passenger terminal and the aircraft parking stands.
“The choice fell on the Marini ‘XPRESS mobile plant because of its capacity to produce the amounts necessary for the work requirements together with its flexibility, that will allow it to be installed at other sites where Pavimental is doing airport work. As well as in Rome, we are currently working in Naples and there are other horizons, other sites of interest in the airport infrastructure that are characterized by large investments. ".
Pavimental has been working for more than 40 years in the construction, maintenance and modernisation of roads, motorways, bridges, viaducts, service areas and airports. It is a leading Italian company in the development of materials and technologies for road building. Presently the company employs around 700 personnel with a production value corresponding to 298 million euros, generated by three main lines of business: maintenance, infrastructure and airports.
