Work will take 22 months from receipt of the notice to proceed, said Ansaldo.

“This new order is the result of concerted teamwork involving the entire company,” commented Giuseppe Zampini, CEO of Ansaldo Energia.

“I’d like to thank the government institutions involved for their constant and effective support in defence of Italian industry on international markets,” Zampini added.
