The Marini Top Tower 3000 P was selected for the Frantoio Fondovalle production site near the Guglielmo Marconi airport of Bologna (Italy).
Below is an excerpt from the January 2020 issue:
“It includes a large number of optionals given its location in an area of utmost strategic importance, having different needs with respect to plants located further away from the city centre. The distinguishing feature of this plant with respect to others we own, is its high finished product storage capacity: we have four silos, each 70 m3, split into two parts. We are therefore able to store a production of about 280 m3: 18-19 truckloads of material. Three of these silos are able to store the material at temperature for many hours, from 48 to 72: in other words, two or three days.
This is a crucial aspect requested by the Company in order to meet local market demands, because for urban maintenance works, without this type of plant, energy costs would be much higher due to the continuous starting and stopping, not to mention the amount of time wasted waiting for the material. Moreover, by running production the night before the planned works, we are able to best programme the tasks of the various teams, which are many and which operate using different types of materials - thus making it available at the construction site from the early hours of the morning - and at temperatures able to guarantee the quality of the final result. This means we can expect an immediate return on our investment.”
