Latest projects


SOIL srl presently employ 24 people, among which are active partners, employees and exclusive collaborators. Depending on the field of activity required, job orders are carried out by workgroups of technical experts under the guidance of a technical director; for works of greater size and complexity, the latter is routinely flanked by a figure covering internal and external organizational and management issues. As contracts are often multidisciplinary, a mix of know-how is required and therefore a mutual interaction between the different groups.

Here follow the main figures.

Costa Concordia Parbuckling

For the purposes of the safe removal of the Costa Concordia wreck, SOIL Srl has been involved into all aspects concerning the geological and geotechnical design and assistance for the construction of the foundation structures.

The Costa Concordia Wreck Removal Project foresaw in the first stage the rotation of the wreck to its vertical position (parbuckling phase) and subsequently its re-floating by means of the installation of steel caissons on both sides of the ship.

The parbuckling required the construction of underwater anchoring structures on the landward side of wreck and the installation of three submerged platforms for its temporary support in vertical position on the seaward side. The structures were built respectively at water depths of 5 ÷ 10m and 40 ÷ 50m below sea level. Drilled steel piles (D = 2m) were designed for the platforms foundations.

The activities performed by SOIL Srl concerned:
