Proger at OMC-MED Ravenna Taking a leading role in the energy transition Sustainable energy, the ecological and energy transition and technological innovation are the topics on which companies (from traditional and renewable energy companies to producers of services and technological solutions for plant construction and distribution) involved in a sector that is increasingly at the centre of economic, social and cultural news will be confronted. Proger spa will be present again this year at the 15th edition of the Omc-Med Conference and Exhibition in Ravenna (from 28 to 30 September), the biennial showcase of the main players in the energy industry for the countries bordering the Mediterranean. Proger has been working in the energy sector since the 1990s, having developed transversal skills that apply to both traditional and more innovative productions. Overall, the annual turnover deriving from the design of plants and technological solutions in the energy industry is about 50 million euros, about half of Proger\'s entire turnover. The company employs around 300 people in Italy and abroad. The skills developed by Proger spa in these thirty years of work in the energy sector have been transversal, \"and make it a natural protagonist of transition engineering, an ideal hinge between the past that will accompany us for a short time to come, and a future that has already begun but requires time and investment to establish itself definitively\", as explained by Umberto Sgambati, CEO of Proger spa, who will be present in Ravenna on the opening day of the Omc. The skills developed by Proger spa in these thirty years of work in the energy sector have been transversal, \"and make it a natural protagonist of transition engineering, an ideal hinge between the past that will accompany us for a short time to come, and a future that has already begun but requires time and investment to establish itself definitively\", as explained by Umberto Sgambati, CEO of Proger spa, who will be present in Ravenna on the opening day of the Omc. The \"holistic vision\" built up over the years by the work of Proger spa ensures a present made up of projects on every side of the energy sector, contributing to the construction of more sustainable plants in traditional production, increasing planning in the renewable energy sector, investing with expertise in the field of \"green\" energy (from hydrogen to bioethanol). It is worth mentioning, on the latter front, the important experience of Proger in the construction of hydrogen production plants, both as a by-product of the recovery and purification of traditional refineries - as in the case of the Lukoil plant in Burgas (Bulgaria) - and as \"green\" production from the electrolysis of water, in the pilot project conducted by Enel on the island of Stromboli.

Tunisia-Italy power interconnection project The "bridge" that will connect the electricity systems of Europe and Africa Proger, in JV with HPC (lead partner), IDEA Consult, ELARD and Plexus Energy, is responsible for the preparation of environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) studies and a resettlement action plan (RAP) for the Tunisia-Italy power interconnection project (TUNITA). TUNITA, developed by the Italian and Tunisian transmission system operators, TERNA and STEG, and financed by the World Bank, is considered a Project of Community Interest (PCI) of strategic importance for the electricity transmission system in the Mediterranean basin and will provide an additional tool to optimise the use of energy resources between Europe and North Africa. The 600 MW DC ultra-high voltage submarine electricity link will connect the Partanna power station (in the province of Trapani) with a corresponding station on the Tunisian peninsula of Cape Bon via a 200 km submarine cable. The objectives of the project are manifold and aim to optimise the use of energy resources between Europe and North Africa, with benefits for the Italian and European electricity system in terms of sustainability, integration of markets and renewable sources, while respecting the Green Deal and reducing CO2 emissions. Proger and the JV are committed to the preparation of in-depth environmental and social impact studies, which are a prerequisite for the feasibility of the project and to ensure that all the works are carried out with the utmost care for the territory and the environment, in particular for the protected areas that are part of the Natura 2000 network, minimising the impact on the landscape, the coastal landing areas and the seabed.

Remediation works started on La Martella waste treatment platform The first step towards returning an important facility to the city of Matera The remediation of the landfill adjacent to the waste treatment platform in \"La Martella\" began. Proger (in JV with Eng. Barucchello) is in charge of the design, supervision of works and safety coordination of the intervention aimed at overcoming the EU infringement procedure, dated back to September 2017, through environmental impact mitigation works for each of the sectors composing the plant. The municipal solid waste treatment platform is located approximately 7 km from Matera and covers a total area of approximately 25 hectares, divided into 5 sectors. The first phase of the work, which is expected to last 8 months, will involve the relocation of the overburden present in sectors III and IV to sector V, for a total of approximately 45,000 tonnes of waste, and will make it possible to resolve the current environmental risk situation. On completion of the operations, the final capping layers will be laid and the revegetation and environmental restoration work will be carried out, with the installation of new treatment plants for biogas and leachate extracted from the landfill sectors and rainwater. The work will be completed within one year and the areas will be handed back to the municipality for its operation and maintenance activities.

2020 Financial statements: Proger increase profit and assets Proger\'s economic results for the year 2020 are to be considered more than satisfactory despite the Covid emergency, as also confirmed by the A.3.1 rating by Cerved Rating Agency: the 2020 financial statements show an increase in EBITDA (+ 20.10%), net profit (+ 15.75%) and shareholders\' equity (+ 12.5%), and a substantial confirmation of the turnover of 88.25 million euros, against a value of 88.95 in 2019 (-0.79%). The gross operating margin (EBITDA), contrary to what has happened worldwide, has had a substantial improvement reaching 12,54 million euros against the 10.44 million recorded in 2019. The Ebitda Margin (EBITDA / Value of Production) - which stands at 14.21% with an increase of 2.47 percentage points compared to 2019 (11.74%) – is particularly interesting to potential investors. Therefore net profit stands at 5.78 million euros, with an increase of approximately 1 million compared to the previous year. From a financial and equity point of view, Proger spa shows an excellent relationship between Net Financial Position (NFP) and EBITDA, both in absolute value and with regard to the sector it belongs to; given the operating margin achieved, the de quo index, equal to 1.99 compared to 2.60 in 2019, summarizes the ability to repay the bank debt in a limited time frame and in any case much lower than that actually contracted. Finally, Proger’s “book value” (shareholders\' equity) is noteworthy, showing a marked increase, amounting to € 49,136 million compared to € 43,681 in 2019. The positive results of 2020 are attributable to the performance of Proger\'s main business lines and precisely: Multidisciplinary Engineering: for the strategic role played during the Covid-19 emergency, by carrying out orders related to the expansion of healthcare facilities and the procurement of medical devices. Infrastructure: for due diligence and construction management and surveillance activities carried out for ASPI. It should be noted that this sector is currently booming given the particular attention the Italian and European legislators are paying to the maintenance of high-risk infrastructures (bridges, tunnels, dams ..).Green Energy: for activities related to the production of energy from renewable sources, biofuels as well as the energy efficiency of existing real estate assets.Oil & Gas: for the engineering and construction projects relating to fully automated drilling rigs according to which Proger\'s \"Stargate Rigs\" system is \"unique\" on the international market. In fact, the automations applied to the main components of the plant allow both to carry out drilling without personnel, by controlling the process from a control cabin and eliminating any risks of serious accidents, and to assemble and disassemble the plant itself, by speeding up transport from one field to another with significant cost saving.

Transition Engineering The article by Proger CEO Umberto Sgambati for Il Sole 24 Ore We are living a historic moment in which all technological references seem to have been overcome by environmental, social and health changes, which ask for a rapid transition towards what is New.For some time now ambitious policies, programs and initiatives at various levels (from the UN to the EU) push towards objectives that seem incompatible with the times and ways with which, starting from the Industrial Revolution, technological innovations have occurred in every field. Now they invoke the urgency of a rapid, disruptive change, and it is not a coincidence that the adjective \"disruptive\" is the most used in the daily speeches about Transition\"! But the almost messianic expectation of the maturation of extraordinary innovation from now to 10, 20 or even 30 years paradoxically risks holding back the renewal of what is existing, physiological due to obsolescence or convenient on the basis of a technical / economic analysis, for fear of finding oneself with works, plants and infrastructures already outdated at the time of entering into operation or shortly thereafter (the \"stranded assets\"). On the other hand, the immediate deployment of technologies still far from full maturity would not be economically sustainable: obviously, it would not be sustainable for companies, nor even for the state, which would have to commit substantial funding resources (a film that has already been seen!) The combination of these elements risks transforming the Ecological Transition into a sterile race spreading evocative messages that promise ambitious commitments for the distant future. With the real risk that these commitments remain such or reach the poor result of improving in the short term and cheaply the reputation of those who declare them from time to time.  On the contrary, Transition is a stage race, where each stage is equally important because all together they draw an authentically sustainable trajectory towards the New, that will never be reached with a single leap, or with uncertain or too long steps.Deciding the number, length and duration of each stage; identifying and deploying innovative technologies that are sufficiently mature, and above all suitable for the national context; developing new ones, experimenting to make them available for the following stages; using the best public-private partnership tools, perhaps modifying them to encourage widespread use, to maximize the benefits and reduce the time and risk of this long march. To my mind, this is the real challenge of the Transition. \"A crisis can be a real blessing to any person, to any nation. For all crises bring progress. Creativity is born from anguish, just like the day is born form the dark night. It\'s in crisis that inventiveness is born, as well as discoveries made and big strategies.\" Should we trust Albert Einstein (so often quoted in this period) we will live an extraordinary era, in which a development model has entered into crisis but a new model is still far away, and it is only possible to catch a glimpse of it : we are currently wading, and extraordinary opportunities are opening up. To still all doubts, the analysis of the document that constitutes the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, presented on 30th April by the Italian Government to the European Commission should suffice: 6 missions, divided into 16 components, each in turn comprising serveal lines of intervention (43 in all), divided into different actions. This investment accounts for 235 billion euros, between European loans (non-repayable and on loan) and a national complementary fund.Everything has to be planned, designed, authorised and launched in a very short time (no later than 2023) and completed respecting the time schedules, as well as times, costs and quality; and, in any case, by 2026. A very ambitious plan, due to the variety and breadth of the planned projects: from energy efficiency and redevelopment of private and public buildings, with particular attentiont to schools and hospitals, to renewable sources; from public transport and sustainable mobility to major road, rail and port works; from the intelligent monitoring of our rich building and infrastructural heritage, to the engineering for its maintenance, safety and prevention; from the digitization of the public administration and the health system, to the new frontiers of telemedicine and personal care and well-being.And many other projects, capable of triggering a virtuous innovation and economic growth process, as well as constituting an extraordinary competition for the best engineering skills in the country, which will have to produce an exceptional effort and do their best so that the numerous external constraints, as far as timing, technical and permitting issues concern, do not prevent the achievement of such ambitious and important objectives.However, the scientific, technological and management challenge that awaits us - albeit of an epochal scale - is not the only one, especially if we look at PNRR as the first step of the Transition. At least two others must be added: on one hand, of economic nature, and on the other hand of social nature. Let\'s start with the first. In order to establish a new development model, it is necessary to invest as many resources in new technologies, but it must be done by adopting specific tools according to the level of technological maturity reached. To quote the European Green Deal, this allows \"to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, in all sectors of the economy, from the generation of electricity to the whole industry, agriculture, cars, buses, airplanes, ships, while ensuring biodiversity and sustainable use of natural resources, without compromising economic growth, even increasing it, thus increasing \'the well-being of European citizens. Interventions - and incentives - unrelated to the actual \"maturation\" would inevitably lead to the useless waste of public money, without approaching the common goal and supporting few beneficiaries.We are therefore in the presence of an optimization problem: it is necessary to approach the project objective at the minimum cost - in any case very high - otherwise the effort would be useless, as well as unsustainable.For the economic sustainability of the Transition it will be necessary to identify the most suitable regulatory and financial instruments, making use as much as possible of the Public-Private partnership: the best engineering, managerial, entrepreneurial and financial skills must be involved (as is known, private capital in the current accounts of Italians amount to a figure about 8 times higher than the entire amount of the PNRR!) that are able to ensure the \'technical-economic sustainability of the Transition but also the perfect and pragmatic knowledge of the Territory, to guarantee projects tailored to real needs.In this regard, the presence and work of leading companies, well rooted in the Territory but aiming at international markets, which know how to integrate and develop the capacity and creativity of local excellences, will prove to be fundamental - and globalization requires it. This will ensure the leap in quality necessary to connect local players and the rest of the world. As far as the social order within the Transition project concerns, it is clear that the permitting procedures are the heart of the matter. In fact, such an organic and widespread system of measures requires the construction of works and infrastructures of all kinds: from transport to telecommunications, from energy to water and waste management, from networks - physical and digital - to interventions on existing buildings (for recovery and efficiency, but also for demolition and reconstruction, for hundreds of thousands of buildings - if only one property out of 100 were carried out, the interesting buildings would be more than 700 thousand); from urban and infrastructural changes in cities - increasingly smart and eco-sustainable - to the recovery of villages and inland areas, destined to become \"offshoots\" of urban areas connected by digital infrastructures and able to guarantee a different quality of life; from the redevelopment and upgrading of production plants to adapt them to new energy sources, to the construction of new power plants and infrastructures for the production, storage and management of the new green energy.But all these interventions - and the list would be very long - are today in fact hindered, if not even impeded, by a deep-rooted opposition to change; and this even in the presence of well thought-out projects, in compliance with the rules and the territory, as well as supported by complete and correct impact assessments. This opposition, often preconceived, must be faced and mitigated with a careful process of information and involvement that requires knowledge, transparency, credibility and intellectual honesty.This too will be a fundamental piece of the Transition project. The effective and efficient design of the Transition means integrating different skills:Not only technical, but also socio-urban, economic-financial, managerial, communicative, etc. All together, they must define and enable an growth path towards the New and identify the different stages, according to those technologies available and with particular attention to the territorial context. And then to be able to detect potential obstacles in time and to propose possible remedies, manage risks, analyze alternative hypotheses if need be and propose the necessary variants, quickly reschedule interventions to meet deadlines and budget. Last but not least, optimising investments, with the participation of private capital, as a futher guarantee of the ability of the business class, by naturally proposing fair measures for an appropriate remuneration. It is therefore necessary to design interventions that are concretely and authentically sustainable, which implement the Transition process step by step, based on a close and loyal relationship with the Territory, through the involvement of projects and local resources guided by the best entrepreneurial realities, that work according to guidelines defined by the public watchdog.  It is high time to Engineer Transition.

New ISTAT Headquarters Proger, in JV with A.B.D.R. Architetti Associati, MANENS-TIFS and Studio VALLE Progetti, was awarded the final design of the new Istat (Italian National Institute of Statistics) headquarters after winning the Design Competition – out of 17 competing groups – in 2019. The new Istat Headquarters will be built in the Pietralata area in Rome. The design strategies focused their attention on the relationships with the city and its flows, with the aim to contribute, through the design of public spaces, to a better overall quality of the urban environment. The project is characterised by “openness and permeability” criteria, allowing, on one hand, a great flexibility in the use of the facilities annexed to the offices – so that they can be shared by the community – and, on the other hand, offering articulated and modular spaces within the building and the working environments. The building structure will consist of a two-storey basement, intended for ancillary activities (entrance hall, library and historical archive, Museum of statistics, refreshment area, kindergarten, gym and conference centre), from the overlying 8-storey L-shaped building, intended for offices, and two underground floors, dedicated to parking and the technological centre. All enriched with a double square, namely a pedestrian square at zero altitude and the other located on a 9-meter higher terrace, which will host a “hanging forest”, open to the public. The project applied the best bioclimatic and energy efficiency strategies and maximized the use of renewable energy sources, providing protection systems for direct solar radiation for all the facades, accumulation and release systems of the accumulated thermal load, along with passive bioclimatic systems based on convective loops (passive heating and cooling).

Former Allianz headquarter, Corso Italia 23 Milan Proger to work on the important redevelopment project The redevelopment project of the historical Allianz Group headquarter was presented in Milan after being entrusted to SOM – Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Proger, together with its technical partners – BMS, Manens-Tifs and Systematica – performed the structural and MEP design, the technical coordination of the whole project, and the consultancy services, in particular with regard to environmental sustainability topics and to the relations with the institutions to obtain the Building Permit. Moreover, Proger has been chosen by Allianz Real Estate, owner of the real estate complex, to complete the entire design implementation phase, along with Construction supervision, Safety coordination and Construction management activities. The project will transform the 50,000-square meter historical complex located in Corso Italia – originally designed by Gio Ponti, Piero Portaluppi and Antonio Fornaroli in the early ‘60s – into an urban campus with offices and open spaces. Three buildings and a new internal courtyard with a garden will be the heart of the campus; the office floors, which are all open-space, will host central common areas; solar panels and new façade materials will considerably reduce heat dispersion; the introduction of green areas and the renovation of the outdoor courtyard, with restaurants, shops, and a co-working space will allow a deeper connection with the neighbourhood. All the above is accomplished with attention to sustainability concepts, workplace, well-being and smart building strategies, ensuring continuity with the original design. The project deals with all sustainability aspects  – environment, source and people management – aspiring to achieve the LEED/WELL Gold standards, through specific passive and active strategies linked to the climatic characteristics of the region to improve the building’s performance thus becoming an outstanding example of environmental performance.

Proger’s capital increase takes shape The first €13 million has been paid as part of the new business plan. Rome - Proger Managers & Partners (PM&P) has subscribed and paid in full (€ 13,385,000) the capital increase of the subsidiary Proger Ingegneria s.r.l., ensuring that the latter may in turn subscribe and pay its share of the approved capital increase in Proger s.p.a., of which it holds 67.9%. Proger will use the capital to finance its business plan, announced last autumn, with the aim of becoming more and more an international \"demand generator\" able to develop innovative skills that, combined with appropriate financial and human resources, allow it to invest in \"new projects\" in the identified country targets, building and promoting ambitious business initiatives, in particular in the Green Energy, Security and Healthcare sectors, focusing on a strong cross-cutting technological component, in line with the most advanced methodological approaches. The financial transaction was carried out thanks to a strategic agreement between PM & P - of which Proger\'s Managing Directors, Umberto Sgambati and Marco Lombardi, are the main shareholders - and Cadogan Petroleum Holdings BV, 100% controlled by Cadogan Petroleum PLC, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange. The industrial partnership between Proger and Cadogan will be strengthened by the presence of two figures, including the President, appointed by Cadogan to the Board of Directors of Proger, composed of seven members. \"This agreement\" declares the CEO, Marco Lombardi, \"offers both companies the advantage of potential operational synergies for the development of their respective activities and marks a further step forward in Proger\'s international development path which in recent years has recorded a steady growth in value of production (€ 124 million in 2017 ) confirming itself today as the non-captive number 1 engineering company in Italy\".

One year support to a vaccination centre in Congo Pointe Noire, Congo - Proger has signed a partnership agreement with the Health Department of the Kouilou Region, in Congo, to support for one year a vaccination centre in Pointe Noire: the CSI (Integrated Health Centre) of Mpita, a densely populated borough of the city. The project, conceived with the aim of promoting the healthcare of those communities that live in the areas the company works in, with the collaboration of local stakeholders and on the basis of the Country’s policies, is linked to the national vaccination strategy set by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Congo for the 5-year period 2016-2020 (Programme Elargi de Vaccination - PEV).   More specifically, the project’s objective is to contribute to the reduction of the incidence of the major endemic diseases, on one hand, according with Proger’s competences, through the strengthening of CSI plants and, on the other hand, through the organization and management of a customized awareness campaign. This will be mainly addressed to children and mothers: in this regard a prompt action is particularly important because it is decisive for the future of the country, and it will involve the surrounding population during the implementation phase of the program, by favouring the creation of professional opportunities for the local communities. Proger has been working in Congo since 2009 and, thanks to this initiative, it confirms once more the attention it addresses to the realization of sustainable, efficient and responsible social projects in those countries where it works, trying to positively impact the development of the hosting communities.

Road ‘Pedemontana Aspromonte Tirrenico’ Reggio Calabria, Italy - Proger has been awarded, together with the company Cosedil S.p.A., with the detailed design and works execution on the basis of the final design of the road Pedemontana dell’Aspromonte Tirrenico, linking the mountain municipalities of Cinquefrondi, San Giorgio Morgeto and Cittanova (province of Reggio Calabria), connecting the former main road 111 and the “Strada di Grande Comunicazione” crossing the ridge between the Ionian coast and the Plains of Rosarno.   With reference to the project, one of the main aspects of the technical offer developed during the tender stage referred to the operating process proposed for the completion of the viaducts structures partially built and abandoned between the \'80s and the \'90s. In this regard, due to the poor knowledge of the types of underpinning already built, of the mechanical characteristics of the concrete and of the reinforcement rods at its inside, Proger has proposed the abandon of the existing substructures and the realization of brand new works for three out of four viaducts of the section. As per the Macario viaduct, the most important of the lot, the reuse of the existing piers and abutments has been studied, after the optimization of the design of dosserets, which will be lighter because fully in steel. This solution ensures a general behaviour of the viaducts in case of seismic events, a longer overall lastingness, better safety and a clear simplification for the construction stages. Finally, the offer has been completed with some technical improvements and with the identification of a series of additional interventions in the territories of the surrounding Municipalities, in order to benefit road users and to emphasize the territory.
