Major projects in Central Europe!
TMR, Tatry Mountain Resorts, operator of the largest ski areas in Central Europe, not only operates the most prestigious resorts in the area (Vysoke Tatry, Jasná Nízke Tatry, Špindleruv Mlýn and Szczyrk), but also hotels, aquatic parks and restaurants. This diversification enables TMR to be a complete tourism service provider, both in winter, with nearly 2 million visitors on mountain sites, as well as in summer.
Longtime customer of "Liberty" technology, in particular in Jasná Nízke Tatry, where the first YORK system dates back to 1996, the TMR group again wished to appeal to the expertise of the snow experts from TechnoAlpin for the snowmaking projects in the resorts of Jasná-Chopok (SK) and Špindleruv Mlýn (CZ). The projects are part of the broader annual investment program of 44 million €uro in the group's resorts: lift, trail works, hotels etc. This development of TMR resorts, initiated several years ago, aims to strengthen the status of these destinations, both regionally and internationally.
The most important project takes place on Špindleruv Mlyn (Czech Republic) where TechnoAlpin makes the third phase of the works started in 2014. The first 2 phases have focused on the Hromovka hillside of the resort, with a complete rebuilt of a snowmaking system originally built by a competitor: Laying of 4700 meters of pipes, with 73 snow guns, Rubis Evo lances, and a machine room with a pumping capacity of 360m3/h. In 2016, the project focuses on the Medvedin hillside of the resort.
For this year, a new machine room is under construction, with a pumping capacity of 435m3/h, and two existing trails will be equipped with sixty snow guns, a majority of Rubis Evolution and a few Safyr. In total, nearly 4,500 meters of pipes will be laid.
On the sites Jasná and Chopok (Slovakia), which are connected, the project encompasses system expansion, both on the trail and in the machine rooms, in Chopok, as well as optimization of existing equipment on the trails of Jasná. In total, one hundred snow guns, Rubis Evo, TL6 and the first 12 meter arm mounted TF10 fan gun, will be set up on the trails of these two resorts. It represents nearly 6300 meters of pipes. Special feature in Jasna: The operator has chosen for one of the trails which are wide to install double Rubis Evo on ten snow pits to double the production capacity in this area. The operator has also chosen to reinforce the pumping capacity by adding 2 more snowmaking pumps in the machine room.
TechnoAlpin is proud to support once again the TMR group and bring its expertise on snowmaking issues. In Špindleruv Mlýn, Jasná and Chopok, just like for all other TechnoAlpin customers, the know-how of the snow experts is being implemented to best contribute to the success and development of the ski resorts!
