Who is 6V?

6V Srl is the new branch of the Trevi Group specializing in the environmental sector that optimizes the reclamation of contaminated soil and sediments through on-site treatment processes.

The company was born from the on-going collaboration of two important multinationals, Trevi Spa and 3V Green Eagle Spa, who firmly believe that reclamation work and in general all infrastructural work has to revolve around the fundamental principle of “Environmental Sustainability”. For this purpose, the two companies have embarked on a joint journey to perfect on-site reclamation technologies by exploiting their reciprocal technological “know how”.

6V Srl is the owner of the mobile 'Soil and Sediment Washing' plant that can treat up to 100 tonnes per hour of soil and sediments of residues from contaminated drill spoil in order to re-use the recoverable sand and aggregates for other production processes or environmental restoration activities. The plant is certified as a mobile plant for waste treatment, pursuant to Italian regulations.

6V Srl also disposes of pilot plants that are able to reproduce to scale the treatment processes and enable the most suitable technological solutions to be identified rapidly and cheaply to apply them to reach the reclamation objective that is tailored to the site of the material to be treated:

  • a soil washing laboratory pilot plant with 50 kg/hour capacity
  • a soil washing pilot plant with 5 tonnes/hour capacity
  • a line – PFM technology consolidation pilot plant with 5 tonnes/hour capacity

In addition to the on-site services on contaminated sites or port areas, 6V Srl is also available as a supplier of environmental services that complement the skills of the TREVI Group and of the 3V group.

Genesis

Work on infrastructure, increasingly requires an attentive approach to the environmental aspects of the territory. In particular, the work to recover and revive abandoned industrial areas and building up the infrastructure of port coastal areas involve sites that have traditionally been affected by environmental contamination of water, air, soil and sea, river or lake sediments.

Reclamation and safety works are required that involve managing major quantities of contaminated soil, water and sediments.

In order to implement innovative solutions and tackle environmental issues with a multidisciplinary approach, Trevi SpA and 3V Green Eagle SpA have started to work together by experimenting with a range of treatment technologies that maximise recovery of the treated matter and consequently reduce the amounts that need to be disposed of.

Various tests were performed which allowed the construction of two pilot plants to perform the land reclamation of polluted materials and the consolidation of the fine-grained material with poor-quality geotechnical features with the objective of recovering most of the fractions leaving the treatment, so as to achieve a 'zero discharge' in which all fractions are valued and managed as a resource.

Thanks to this steady collaboration, it was possible to set up the NewCo 6V SRL. Its mission is to perform land reclamation and environmental restoration works mainly through on-site techniques, including the management, treatment and recovery of contaminated soils and sediments - within infrastructural works - land reclamation works and confinement of polluted sites.

The partners

6V Srl was born from the idea of two international industrial groups that share the same vision: working in different business sectors, with a business model aiming at Environmental Sustainability in all its activities.

Trevi Spa

Trevi Spa, a company of the Trevi Group , is a global leader in underground engineering for specialized foundations, ground stabilization, tunnel excavation, repair of dikes, and the recovery of polluted areas. The Group makes development, research and design its underlying mission and intends to dedicate itself with commitment and passion to the construction of useful bases for the socioeconomic development of many cultures and of the environment. Through an initial public offering in 1999 and numerous significant acquisitions, the Group with its companies Trevi, Soilmec, Drillmec, Petreven and Trevipark have reached a global presence operating on five continents and totalling 36 companies with 45 offices in 40 different countries.

3V Green Eagle

3V Green Eagle is a company of the multinational 3V Group that has almost sixty years of experience in Specialty Chemicals production, advanced chemical engineering and the manufacture of process systems and equipment. These foundations have given 3V Green Eagle an insightful understanding of the environmental issues facing the chemical engineering industry. It specializes in the treatment of heavily-contaminated water and sludge, drilling mud and hazardous waste. The company is also committed to research into and the development of new technologies which may be adopted to recover useful materials from waste.

In order to optimize the development of our technologies, our researchers, chemical production managers, process engineers, mechanical engineers and constructors work together continuously. In this way, we have been able to create a solid and multidisciplinary technical culture which offers a wide range of environmental solutions to the manufacturing, municipal, oil and gas and recovery industries.

Agreements

6V, in order to provide a global service with solutions that address different issues of an environmental character, has signed cooperation agreements with companies and professionals who share the same rigorous and technological approach to these issues.

In particular, cooperation agreements have been signed that enable the following to be provided:

  • environmental and sustainable dredging, using innovative technologies that reduce the production of pulp and the quantity of dredging water to be treated;
  • development, design and testing for soil washing treatment. By working closely with plant designers and builders, 6V is able to devise the pilot tests, tests on the laboratory scale, support for design and the creation of soil sediment washing plants and plants for treating industrial water and wastewater.

On site Remediation

6V is a collaboration between Trevi and 3V Green Eagle. It's mission is to optimize the performance of land reclamation and environmental restoration works.
