LIVORNO. Albizzati Group, which for over 40 years has been a leader in the design and production of systems, equipment and metal structures for gas turbine and petrochemical plants and for energy production, is opening a plant in Guasticce, in the area of the freight village of Livorno. Albizzati, with its headquarters and production plants in Milan, has in fact won two international bids, with an overall value of 40 million euros, for the production and assembly of command, control and data analysis modules, so-called shelters, at the service of oil extraction plants and refineries in Kuwait. The cabins are intended for the control and operation of Oil & Gas plants, necessary for following the industrial processes that range from extraction to oil refining.
The Guasticce plant is considered by the company to be strategic at a logistic level, precisely due to its location: in fact, it is located less than 1 km away from the freight village, very close to the port and another huge 11 hectare yard on the outskirts of Guasticce, belonging to the company, which will be completed by June and where all final assembly operations for the shelter will be carried out. From here, thanks to two cranes each weighing one thousand quintals, the shelters will finally be loaded onto road vehicles and then transported to the quay for shipping to the Persian Gulf.
Production, which will start in May, will generate 35 new jobs, including 5 managers and around 30 other employees including welders, carpenters and various technicians to be found throughout the country.
