Italian term or phrase: copertura
Mi rendo conto che il termine è drammaticamente generico, deve essere una componente di una raffineria o comunque tra i lavori da fare in una raffineria. Il contesto è molto scarno:
"1. Impianto di scarico acque meteoriche;
(a) Rete di raccolta e scarico aree esterne e copertura;
(b) Vasca di accumulo per recupero;"
e
"1. Impianto di climatizzazione zona produzione;
(a) Unità trattamento aria sulla copertura;"
Questa stessa locuzione (Unità trattamento aria sulla copertura) ricompare anche in altri impianti di climatizzazione (uffici etc).

roof
Explanation:
Italian architects seem to prefer copertura to tetto when talking of roofs, but of course the word is also used form many other things.
