The RAEL mission IS THAT OF PERFORMING WORKS AND PROVIDING SERVICES IN THE SECTOR OF TECHNOLOGICAL PLANTS, WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF MAXIMIZING THE SATISFACTION NOT ONLY OF CUSTOMERS, BUT ALSO THE SUBJECTS THAT WORK IN AND FOR RAEL, HAVING REGARD TO THE RULE OF ART , TO THE ENVIRONMENT, ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND SECURITY.
We begin telling a story, the story of Rael di Carioti Giuseppe e C. S.r.l..
The company born in Genoa in 1948 thanks to the job of its founder, Giuseppe Carioti.
Giuseppe, called ‘Pino’, remained orphan after the war, attends the school for orphans called Marinaretti inAnzio; of strong intelligence and quick learning, he stand out and he is taken care by the directress who follows personally instruction and education.
Pino grow up and decide to come back to Genoa, the origin’s city of his family. He is rejected from the army for a splinter that makes him blind from an eye. This serious injury give him the possibility to get specialized as electrician: he works before for COOPERATIVA ELETTRICISTI GRANDE GENOVA and after for ICEL .
Impresa Costruzioni e Lavori, always in Genoa, with profit and satisfactions, buti it is not enough for him.
His is ambitious and enterprising.
In 1948 Pino found RAEL as individual company (which in 1985 evolve in S.a.s and then, in 1997, bacame a limited company and it changes in S.r.l.).
At the beginning the main focus was on reparing small radio devices and on maintenance and reparing of civil electrical sistems: the name of RAEL, indeed, come from the union of the first two letters of the words ”radio” and “electricity”.
Soon, the RAEL’s ray of action extends to the public lighting field. The period time of rebuilding after the World war see the company committed on different projects of public lighting in many areas of the city of Genoa and in its province: from the prestigious neighborhood of Righi, to the city of Recco distroied by the war.
This ray of action become bigger and intensified in the years that today there isn’t area in the city of Genoa where Rael is not presented with installations of small or big public lighting sistems.
With the develop of the company the generational passage takes place and Pino, always working in the warehouse and offices of the company, give the head to his sons Carlo and Vilma: Carlo manage the core business, Vilma the back office and administration.
These are the 60’s, the fast development of the Country and the new generation brings innovative ideas, enthusiasm and professionality, make the company growing without lose the family feature of the company that is getting reacher even on the tecnichal side thanks to the precious support of Maurizio Ferrini, Carlo and Vilma cousin, appreciated tecnichal professional who will be a part of the growth of RAEL
until his premature disappearance.
RAEL give lighting to “Corso Italia”, the prestigious and panoramic waterfront of the city; works for University, municipality; realize electrical sistems not only in Genoa, but also in other areas of the Region and in the whole North-West of Italy. Carlo patents and develops the lightin signs: the road signs expand quickly in the city, becoming a national model and representing the first of the many innovations which characterize the path of the company in the years.
RAEL expands its activity in the years adding the motorway lighting, the installation of electrical sistems in low voltage rather then switchboards, transformation and distribution cabins for electrical energy on the public network and users of big dimensions (industrial, hospitals, commercial centers,…).
Since 1995 Andrea Carioti (Carlo’s son) join the company representing the third generation.
The changes of the market and the growth of the company bring Andrea to develop activities as design and managing of tecnologichal sistems (electrical, thermoidraulic, conditioning and specials), preventive, ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, rather then services of energy efficence, renewable sistems and the develop of the smart city. Is then that RAEL made the technological systems of Teatro Nazionale in Milan and the San Lorenzo tunnel in Friuli Venezia Giulia, plant regulatory compliance of Parco Scientifico Tecnologico ‘Csata Novus Ortus’ in Valenzano (Bari), lighting systems with led technology in many tunnels of the three lines motorways in the
whole Italian territory, rather then the innovative technological systems of the ‘Smart Polygeneration Microgrid’ in Savona University (gas microturbine with high performance for the simultaneou production of electricity and thermal energy, photovoltaic system on the roof,concentration thermodynamic solar plant,
two electric vehicles charging stations and an electric storage based on innovative batteries to stabilize the production from solar source. All of these devices connected by a network and supervised by a software) and many others.
RAEL therfore has expanded the ray of action in the years, moving from the local market to the national one following all the required standards to be competitive on the European market.
RAEL today is a young and dynamic reality, with a solid economic base consolidated in its 70 years of activities. Years of technical experience and continuous training update of its employees, made it one of the
main companies of the Italian market in the technological systems and, in particular, in the public lighting
sector and energy efficiency.
RAEL proposes itself, also and above all, as a technological partner in the research for efficiency solutions in the energy use, to guarantee sustainability, cost containment, economic growth and savings for the end user.
