The acquisition of orders of the division Energy Solutions has been, instead, inferior regarding the year precedence to root cause of the slow down of the decisional process between our customers. However the trend of increase in the long term in emerging markets and the passage to a flexible ability in order to introduce renewable energies continues to support the future question".
