Genoa – I am seventeen large Ligurian companies in which, from 10 June, the company vaccination campaign will begin. Up 24 questions received by Alisa, Piaggio Aerospace withdrew and six other companies were not admitted because the application was sent after the deadline or due to administrative deficiencies. Among the excluded is the surprising case of Ansaldo Energia, the turbine manufacturer who three months ago was among the first to organize the logistics of the operation, announcing that it would have space and means to vaccinate not only the 2,300 employees, but also their family members and workers of small, unstructured neighboring companies.
A week after the closing of the call, Alisa formalized promoted and excluded from the first expression of interest that the Ligurian super-ASL had published.
According to the ranking, employees will be able to start administering them from next week Shipping Agency le Navi, Amazon, the subsidiary of the Municipality of Genoa Amiu, Autostrade per l’Italia, the Cociv consortium, Fincantieri (both for the Muggiano site and for the Riva Trigoso site and also for the Sestri Ponente shipyard), Iplom,the container terminal of La Spezia, the two offices of Leonardo (in Genoa and La Spezia), Pavimental, Quayside service, Sanlorenzo, Termomeccanica and Tim.
Of these, ten fall within the Genoese metropolitan area and seven in eastern Liguria, while no western company for the moment will start with the doses in the company. The inoculation operations of the doses will be completely borne by the companies, while the Region will distribute the doses of anti-Covid drugs: 5,000 per week in total.
Companies that have been excluded or who want to choose this option will be able to submit further questions every fortnight, by the 12th and 27th of each month. Ansaldo Energia has already submitted an application for June 12 and it is highly probable that it will be admitted. How is it possible that the factory that had distinguished itself for logistical and administrative organization before all the others did not enter the first round? “Due to technical problems, the e-mail of the question did not leave”, explains the company led by Giuseppe Marino. The news of the exclusion created not a little embarrassment and tension in the Campi office.
“The email was not sent within the correct deadline,” explains an internal source. And in the trade union environment it is said that the director of the people, Marco Grillo, was not a little angry. However, the error can be remedied and from what appears the requirements to be admitted are there.
Alisa’s commission will evaluate the new applications received within five working days following the expiry of the terms, i.e. the 12th and 27th of the month. The other five companies not admitted to the first round are Axpo, Enel, Ferrovie dello Stato, Unisalute and Paul Wurth Italia.
Paul Wurth Italia, manufacturer of steel plants, explains that it will be activated on the second lap. «Considering the speed with which the vaccination campaign is proceeding at national and Ligurian level, the support of the companies is indeed important, but not as fundamental as it seemed to be a few months ago. Certainly the case of Ansaldo Energia amazes: – it is pointed out – months of administrative and logistical organization frustrated by a simple email not sent on time ».
