Alessandro Fagioli, the president has always been fascinated by the challenge of hauling and hoisting huge items that during the last twenty years have becoming bigger and heavier
The companies in the group are specialized in the transport, lifting and handling of major heavy items. Fagioli can offer specialist services, which deal with oversized and over-weight cargo that cannot be transported or lifted by conventional methods. These operations cover on a turn-key basis all operations from the conceptual engineering design provided in-house, through to positioning onto foundation including any lifting and logistics operations.
On a case by case basis, Fagioli studies each operation to determine the safest and most technically and economically advantageous solution. The engineering department, in close contact with the surveying team, designs the transport convoy or method of lifting according to the job-specific parameters. Being certified as engineering company, Fagioli in-house department is continuously upgrading and up-dating its know-how and its technological facilities (cad drawings, 3D simulation movies) in order to face each transport and lifting operation with a safely and professional approach.
Fagioli owns and operates one of the biggest fleet in the world of latest generation self-propelled modular transporters and conventional trailers, including all necessary accessory equipment to carry out any foreseeable heavy transport.
Heavy haulage trailers for special transports owned by Fagioli are, between the others, self-propelled modular transporters, modular and conventional towed hydraulic platforms, hydraulic semi-trailers, low-bed platform trailers.
Fagioli is also the owner of the world largest inventory of Strand Jack equipment; Strand Jacks ranging from 15 to 750 ton capacity, these jacks can be used singularly, in pairs, or in groups to give any lifting capacity required. To accompany these, Fagioli have a large fleet of purpose built diesel-hydraulic and electro hydraulic power packs, all with multiple outlets of matched flow which automatically ensures synchronized operating speeds to each of the jacks through the outlets.
To extend our lifting capabilities and to complement our existing range of lifting equipment, Fagioli have invested in heavy duty cranes to cover, with the usual professional and engineered approach, also that segment of lifting activity. The purchase of last-generation crawler cranes such as the Liebherr LR 11350 and LR 1750 are the answer to client's necessity in terms of hoisting of heavy modules and components.
Fagioli owns its own medium-range cranes and proprietary gantry and screw jacks systems to conduct heavy-lift assembly and erection activities for the final positioning of turbine-generators sets, heavy presses, boiler sections, transformers, storage tanks...
River and maritime activity are performed with group-owned geared heavy lift vessels, local barges and tugboats.
Last but not least Fagioli owns an extensive collection of rail cars for the activity of heavy transport on tracks.
