Safety FIRST!

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." This famous quotation, widely attributed to Abraham Lincoln, extols the importance of thorough preparation before undertaking any task.

A strange-looking, trailblazing Pegasus

Si dice che nelle popolazioni di montagna, a causa delle particolari condizioni ambientali, l’ingegno sia particolarmente sviluppato. Sembra sia vero a giudicare dalle molteplici attività della eclettica Dart Engineering, una azienda di Queenstown, nel sud della Nuova Zelanda, dove le Alpi Meridionali raggiungono quasi i 4000 metri.

Lifting solutions in South Korea

With 2.5 million inhabitants, Incheon is the Republic of Korea’s third-largest city and one of its biggest economic centers...

The pegasus of the white circus

Dazzling sun reflecting off the snow, the faces of the Jungfrau and Eiger mountains that seem to blend into a cobalt blue sky, which is crisscrossed by vapour trails from jets of the Patrouille de Suisse aerobatic team, as they swoop and swirl above a colourful audience watching from the stands and along the edges of the Lauberhorn piste.

An almost agricultural Pegasus

We often hear the Amazon Basin described as the "Green Lung of the World"; a vast biological sanctuary of almost 7 million square kilometres, necessary for maintaining the ecological balance of the entire planet.

Never too high

Hessen is rightly considered the greenest region of Germany: as much as 42% of its territory, consisting mainly of hills and low mountain ranges, is covered by forests. The region is also home to numerous rivers (the Fulda, the Lahn, the Eder, the Weser, the Rhine and the Main) and many well-tended gardens that surround both historic buildings and private homes.

The AGRI MAX: an all-in-one ground crew

/
New Zealand is a strange and beautiful country. We have seen wonderful glimpses of it in numerous films, including The Lord of the Rings. A country only slightly smaller than Italy (and curiously with the same boot shape) but inhabited by just 4.5 million people, of whom 87% are concentrated in the cities.

A marine Agri Max!

Norway is synonymous with sailors: since the days of the Vikings, the Norwegians have always crossed the seas, and continue to do so in their free time! They undoubtedly benefit from over 21,000 kilometres of jagged coastline, interspersed with countless fjords and characteristic, small rocky islands called skerries.

A Hangar for Icarus

The long-standing association between the name “Icarus” and the world of aviation is borne out by these images. At Wonderboom airport, situated to the north of Pretoria (South Africa), an Icarus 40.17 is employed for the delicate job of unloading and assembling aircraft sent for scheduled maintenance.

The Brenner base tunnel

If you’d been passing through Verona on 23 March 1859, you might have noticed an unusual crowd of people outside Ponte Vescovo station.

Norsk Wavin buys DIECI equipment

It could almost be an expressionist landscape by Edvard Munch. This is the home of Norsk Wavin, the only Norwegian factory operated by Wavin, the world’s biggest manufacturer of plastic tubes for the civil engineering, manufacturing, construction, healthcare, water, gas, and telecommunications sectors. The group has fourteen subsidiaries in twenty-five European countries. Norsk Wavin mostly makes tubes for industrial electrical equipment, drainage and telecommunications, and exports them to Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.

THE HERCULES, AN IRON FIST IN A VELVET GLOVE…

The coast of Lower Saxony in northern Germany, where the River Elbe flows into the North Sea, is a forest of steel and aluminium providing one of the most valuable resources of our age: clean, renewable energy.

DIECI goes underground

What do Brescia, Milan and Warsaw have in common as far as transport is concerned? Well, one thing is traffic, and it was to combat increasing congestion and pollution that all three cities built underground railways. Today, most major European cities have them.

NEW WEIGHING SYSTEM FOR CONCRETE MIXER RANGE

Apart from telescopic elevators for the heavy manufacturing and construction sectors, Dieci is a leading manufacturer of self-loading concrete mixers, ranging from the most powerful model, the F7000, with a capacity of up to five cubic metres, to the midrange L4700 and L3500, and the N2400, the smallest in the range, specially designed for use in small spaces.

Barangaroo Project

Whenever most people think of Sydney, the images that inevitably spring to mind are of the city’s two main landmarks, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. However, that could change thanks to the Barangaroo Project, an ambitious urban regeneration initiative that is effectively transforming part of the city.
