The Agro-Food Market in Padua (Mercato Agroalimentare di Padova) is the preferred terminal for Italian agricultural products destined for Eastern Europe and is ranked nationwide among the top 10 markets for commercial capacity. There are 32 wholesalers of fruit and vegetable farms and 2 agricultural cooperatives, with a total of about 1000 employees.
In 2000, on the roof of the market, a photovoltaic plant was installed. To guaranty a safe maintenance, Sedico IDLineeVita company, supported by Geobrugg Italia SrL, provided and installed a standardized and specially certified horizontal UNI EN 15057 containment system, based on DELTAX® G80/2 wire mesh.
The solution proved to be ideal. Compared to heavy structures it is easy and fast to install and economic.
