Ecogest: a specialist for an efficient
green maintenance along roads and highways
Kicking off at “EnerGREEN MAINTENANCE around the world” to tell the story of green maintenance companies: first stop in Cotignola, nearby Ravenna, with the company Ecogest S.P.A., an outstanding reality for vegetation management along Italian and European highways.
Ecogest: more than half century of green maintenance along highways
The first episode of “EnerGREEN MAINTENANCE around the world” project has just successfully concluded. It featured the company Ecogest, a national and international leader in vegetation management along roads and highways.
Ecogest has more than fifty years of activity, several branches spread across European and extra European territory, a new headquarter in Italy and a recent overseas landing in Canada.
The company, based in Cotignola (Ravenna), and operating on more than 60% of Italy’s national road network bases its operations on respect for people, human labor and the quality of its services. Over these last decades, Ecogest has decided to entrust its service to the technical competence of Energreen products, thus becoming a true testimonial for the mechanic cut of the grass along roads and highways in Italy and abroad.
ILF Alpha: a grass cutter machine
with telescopic arm on the duty of highway works
In this first episode, Ecogest workers, led by the technical manager Matteo Molinari, take us in a typical workday along the A50 Milano-Serravalle highway where the traffic is particularly heavy, and the interchange gives us a moving, fast and dynamic environment.
Safety is at the maximum level: the machine has been properly prepared, the working unit moves safely and unite, escorting the self-propelled machine and reporting its presence to the drivers.
The compact dimensions of ILF Alpha allow the occupation of the emergency roadway only, without compromising the visibility of drivers and avoiding the creation of dangerous traffic jams.
In addition, thanks to the rotating cabin, the operator can keep the focus on the working area and the driving direction but also has a rear view to keep an eye on approaching traffic.
The combination of the flail head with the guardrail mower results in a quality and efficient work: the bank strip and the two meters of embankment are completely covered for a total of two and half meters as requested by the highway administration.
The presence of signs and of various elements typical of the road environment is not a problem: the telescopic boom T easily overcomes any obstacle, taking advantage of the three telescopic extensions up to 12 meters. The high level of mechanization allows the operator to perform even the most complicated manoeuvres in a reduced space while robustness and quality of components allows to maximize the production per hour.
A clean, fast and safe work, to ensure high quality standards and to offer state-of-the-art service.
Strong and high-quality vegetation maintenance machines,
that enable high daily production
“Robust equipment and quality components are key in our industry and Energreen has been a visionary company, by innovatively transforming a farming vocation work into a technological and cutting-edge opportunity” reports Valerio Molinari, majority shareholder of Ecogest.
These vegetation machines are able to bear without problems an elevated amount of working hours, with resistant and technologically advanced professional equipment, which allow to optimize the production and cut costs.
Energreen would like to thank again the management and employees of Ecogest company for the availability, the energy and for trusting in this new project: we wish to come back with new and interesting point to share together!
