Naples “Capodichino” Airport
Vitali has been awarded another important contract for the adaptation of the flight infrastructure at Naples “Capodichino” International Airport, the eighth Italian airport with over six million passengers per year; it was the first Italian airport to be privatised and is managed by Gesac, a subsidiary of the British Airports Authority (BAA) also managing London airports. In October 2010 it became Italian again. The contract, awarded by GESAC for a total value of 6 million Euro, specifically relates to the widening and adaptation of the taxi way, an area of approximately 50,000 sqm, besides the completion of all adaptation works of the various junctions.
A mobile plant has been installed on site, used to produce the material needed for the substrates. The existing conglomerate surface has been completely removed and a new asphalt covering has been applied; Vitali has made use of cutting-edge machinery using a satellite system which guarantees a perfect flatness of the area worked on. Special asphalt mixtures were also used specifically designed by Vitali’s team for Naples airport taking into account the specific environmental characteristics of the area. The project was carried out with an operational airport, started in October and was completed by December 2016.
