Type of work and methods

Ordinary scheduled maintenance involves the use of multiple intervention teams consisting of specialized technicians, with scheduled visits to check each individual system and at night on plants equipped with CCTV to check efficiency under conditions of artificial light and low brightness.

Extraordinary maintenance for works of modification, renewal and adaptation of each individual system to current regulations.

The H24 emergency intervention includes holidays for non-programmable interventions and envisages a team of 2 specialized technicians (operating within 2 hours from the call by Project Management).

The 24/7 technical assistance, including holidays, at the Palazzo Braschi monitoring Centre provides for the supervision of specialized technicians who, in the event of anomalies, carry out the initial checks of a technical nature and, where possible, rapidly solve the anomaly remotely from the Monitoring Centre. In the event of anomalies which cannot be managed directly from the Monitoring Centre, the supervising technician notifies the Project Management office to activate an on-the-spot intervention by the teams in ordinary service or on call.
