Global testing specialist Exova is expanding its facilities and capabilities in Italy with an investment in a 1.4 million € laboratory in Padova.

According to Exova, the 2,500 m2 facility has been developed in response to rising customer demand for specialist testing across the oil & gas, industrials and construction sectors.  As well as enabling the company to expand its capabilities in these sectors, it will also create the ability to support customers through a range of specialist environmental testing.

Exova says the investment will enhance it’s ability to deliver customer projects in-house, guaranteeing consistency of quality and improving turnaround times, as well as increasing testing capacity.

The laboratory will house it’s specialist CTR division, explains Exova, which is authorised by the Ministry of Public Works to conduct testing for large scale public infrastructure and engineering projects. Having held authorisation since 1998, CTR has worked on projects including the vital MOSE flood defence project in Venice, Italy. For this project, the company carried out 150,000 tests on almost all the materials employed for the structure, particularly the concrete for the caissons supporting iron works and bulkheads.

Commenting on the new facility, Mauro Ostacoli, General Manager of Exova Italy, said, “Our new Padova laboratory is ideally placed to meet the needs of customers with the expertise, capabilities and capacity that we can now offer. It also furthers our growth strategy by allowing us to extend our service range and geographical reach throughout Italy and Southern Europe.”
