Mota-Engil ATIV in Structural Prevention Against Rural Fires

Mota-Engil ATIV is responsible for the execution of the Primary Network of Fuel Management Strips for Defense Against Rural Fires in Lot 7 – Center – Beiras and Serra da Estrela (Serra da Estrela).

The implementation of the Primary Network of Fuel Management Strips is carried out within the framework of the Public Tender launched by the Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests (ICNF), aiming for a maximum intervention of 3700 hectares by 2025. This will create essential infrastructure for structural prevention against rural fires in the territory.

Yet another challenge for Mota-Engil ATIV’s landscaping area, which has been specializing in the operation of prevention and recovery of burnt areas using cutting edge technology at the service of the forest.

This is a network planned and designed on a regional scale and functions as a fundamental structuring element for defense against rural fires. It involves the total or partial removal of vegetation in strategic locations across the territory, with the aim of enhancing the protection of the area against rural fires.

A execução da Rede Primária contempla a: – construção ou regularização do piso da faixa de rodagem e rede de drenagem; – controlo mecânico e moto manual da vegetação espontânea; -corte ou arranque total das invasoras lenhosas e aplicação de herbicida; – redução de densidades; – podas e desramações; – estilhaçamento de sobrantes.
