New projects for TechnoAlpin
This summer, TechnoAlpin's snow experts are engaged in various work sites throughout the world.
The Chinese resort of Lake Songhua, at the foot of Mount Qing, is one of the most well-known in China. Inaugurated in 1965, it boasts slopes with suitable degrees of difficulty for all, as well as the possibility of cross-country skiing. This year, in light of the extension of the resort and its snow-making system, the managers have decided to rely on TechnoAlpin. 30 fan guns (MMS, T40 and TF10) will be installed along the slopes, and three pump stations built, with a capacity of 220 l/s, all supervised by ATASSplus control software.
TechnoAlpin has gained a new and important client in Korea: the Kon Ji Am resort, not far from the capital, Seoul. The resort boasts 11 slopes, suitable for all skiers, whether beginners or experts. For this initial collaboration with TechnoAlpin, the managers have decided to install 4 MMS-type guns.
Skiing with a sea view: few ski resorts can boast this luxury. One is the Daisen White Ski Resort in Japan. The snow-making system is being extended this summer. It had already been developed by TechnoAlpin. 20 further lances with centralised aeration will be installed along the slopes, and 650 m of cast-iron and PE piping laid. This will all be incorporated into the ATASSplus control software.
The Ohta Park (a suburb of St Petersburg) ski resort too has chosen TechnoAlpin for the complete modernisation of the existing snow-making system. The project includes the creation of two pump stations. The total capacity will be 450 m³ of water per hour, with a maximum capacity of 600 m³/h.
As far as snow-making is concerned, the managers have opted for 24 × TF10s, which will be installed in various versions: mobile, arm, and tower. A further 41 × Rubis Evo R10s and Borax B10s will also be installed. The entire system will be managed by the Liberty software.
The Ciampac ski area (ITA) offers interesting slopes for more expert skiers and enjoyable school slopes for beginners.
This summer, the resort will see work to remodernise its snow-making system along the black Bosco slope. In addition to the installation of eight fan guns (TF10 and T40) and 27 Rubis Evo lances, the project includes a pump station below the cableway and the restoration of the pump station above. The two stations will be connected by 2,900 m of fibre-optic cable. The entire system will be supervised by Liberty control software.
The Canadian Red Mountain resort too, in the Monashee Mountains, has chosen TechnoAlpin. Though snowfall is plentiful in winter, the managers have entrusted work to a snow-making system for years. This year, in light of the extension to the resort of approximately 80 hectares, TechnoAlpin has been commissioned to build two new pump stations and lay 1.5 km of piping.
