Milan Out Bypass to Ease Congestion

One of the most important ongoing infrastructure projects in Italy today is the TEEM

construction site, Milan Outer Bypass, whose layout passes east of the city and is des-

tined to ease congestion on the current ring road.

The construction site, where concrete casting is involved, is managed by Icea on be-

half of the main contractor, Arco TEEM Consortium, which includes Impresa Pizzarotti.

Icea has recently completed working on casting the base of a big rainwater storage

tank. The casting involved 700 m³, a Cifa K41L XRZ truck mounted pump fed by a fleet

of Cifa mixers that ensured a continuous flow of concrete from the company produc-

tion plant to the casting site.

The pump was chosen

by Icea for its versatility and

hourly productivity (140

m³/hour), as well as the

horizontal envelop (that

reaches over 35 meters)

of the five sections boom,

which could rach across

the wide foundation.

Icea owner, Angelo Di Fede

said:

“We have been

working

with

Cifa machines for

many years and

we have never

had any problem

with

machines

we have in the

fleet;

ordinary

m a i n t e n a n c e

interventions and

small

problems

on the jobsite

have

always

been solved by

an efficient and

prompt assistance

service by Effretti

professionals.”

“We

give

much importance

to maintenance,

which we pass on

to specialized as-

sistance centres,

since we believe

that having al-

ways efficient ma-

chines is the key

to guarantee a

satisfying jobsite

productivity.”
