Italian company ICOP applying for tunnel tender
Wednesday June 30, 2010 14:34 by Stop Shell Hell in Mayo
Italian company ICOP are currently applying for the tender to build the tunnel for the Shell onshore high pressure raw gas pipeline. The local community have been resisting Shell for the last 10 years and are fighting to protect their health, safety and environment.
This is a call out for protests to put pressure on ICOP to pull out.
Here is their website: http://www.icop.it/tool/home.php

33031 Basiliano UD,

F. +39 0432-838681
I.CO.P have a poor health and safety record for their projects-here are some examples:
a worker of ICOP, Luis Gentil Velandia Porras, died the 10 july 2009 in Camporosso (Udine) during the building of a pipeline. He was hit with a valve took out from a high pressure tube.
– 23/1/2009 during the building of a tram, 2 of the 40 segments of the tunnel felt down, opening a hole under two platform of the Mestre train station
– Unfair competition, links with Mafia
After the L'Aquila earthquake ICOP was immediately awarded the contract for building temporary houses without it being put out for public tender. There are links between ICOP, Tommaso Cannellaa and Bernardo Provenzano, a boss of a mafia family.
– ICOP won the tender to build the motorway Villese-Gorizia, but the TAR judged that it was illegal as the bridge designs were deemed unsafe.
