Since its establishment, Octopus Network has demonstrated an unremitting commitment in performing large-scale environmental-friendly engineering studies and projects. This has allowed us to develop a method of analysis and intervention based on an interdisciplinary assessment of the various components of development that has been applied to a large number of projects. It includes methodologies for evaluating and choosing possible design alternatives in relation to their expected physical, economic and cultural impact, and it involves techniques such as simulation, modelling, analysis, and cost benefit estimates, which have now been brought up to a fine degree of perfection. Octopus has thus acquired experience in environmental works (evaluation of impact, insertion of structures, protection and mitigation measures) at all levels. All this information and know-how can now be made available to meet the growing demand for a cultural environmental policy and to guide and control a country’s development, taking due account of the institutional and legislative advances on a national and international level.
Accumulated experience is extremely important for a engineering network operating on worldwide scale, since every effort is made to ensure the sustainability of the development with the preservation and conservation of the natural, historical and cultural heritage.
Noteworthy projects for their intrinsic characteristics are the following:
- studies on the evaluation of the environmental impact in the towns due to the large gas consumption for domestic and industrial purposes;
- planning studies and the preliminary design of measures for the environmental protection;
- studies for the evaluation of impact and protection/conservation of the environment in very sensitive areas for the construction of new transportation infrastructure;
- Studies for the realization of green areas and urban forests for the absorption of CO2 present in the air and lowering of the temperature near buildings and residential homes.
A Green Network – Renewable Energies
Thanks to its network, Octopus is able to find, manage and supervise highly qualified companies, among the highest excellences in the world, for the design and construction of works such as:
- Wind Power Plants;
- Photovoltaic Systems;
- Geothermal Power Plants.
