Alevro is a new heavy lift and shift joint-venture partnership between Fagioli in Italy and Monadelphous in Australia.
International heavy transport and lifting specialist Fagioli and the heavy lift business of engineering construction group Monadelphous are working together as Alevro. Between them the two companies have more than 100 years of experience. The joint-venture agreement signed in May, unlocks increased capability and capacity to deliver significant resources projects in Australia, the company said.
Alevro offers turnkey heavy lifting and transport combined with engineering. “The proven construction track-record of Monadelphous, combines with Fagioli’s world-class experience in engineering complex global heavy lifting projects to create a unique value proposition to the Australian resources market,” the company said.
Integrating skills in transport, shipping, lifting and installation with the development of modularisation and other techniques is to allow faster construction, fewer project labour hours on site and better risk management.
The partnership is led and managed by Rod Stribley who has long experience in the heavy lifting sector leading business development, negotiations, operations, safety, and strategic business direction.
Perth-based Monadelphous provides construction, maintenance and industrial services, primarily in mining, energy and infrastructure. In addition to Australia the 50 year old company operates in Chile, China, Papua New Guinea, Mongolia and the Philippines.
Fagioli from Italy has been working for 67 years, initially in transport before also specializing in complicated lifting and moving projects. It owns a large fleet of cranes, specialized transport equipment, gantry systems and strand jacks used all over the world.
