The thousandth gun installed at Cerro Catedral (ARG)
During the latest season too, TechnoAlpin succeeded in producing more than 1,000 fan guns. This is an important milestone, which once more confirms the multitude of clients that trust the TechnoAlpin company.
This year, the 1000th fan gun produced is a T40 model. After the application of a special plate bearing the number 1,000, the gun was shipped, together with a further eleven T40 fan guns, to Argentina, specifically, the Cerro Catedral area. This is one of South America's most important ski resorts, with more than 100 km of slopes and vertical transport systems, with a total capacity of 35,000 users per hour.
The installation of the 1000th gun in the Cerro Catedral area is an honour for TechnoAlpin: it is the first time that the Argentinian resort and TechnoAlpin have worked together. In addition to the supply of 12 fan guns, the order includes the installation of 24 pits housing the hydraulic and electrical components required for the conjunction of water, air, electricity and data line. In this way, each gun can be operated autonomously, as required. The entire system will be supervised by ATASSplus control software. This acquires all data from the snow guns and meteostations, optimising snow generation in accordance with the prevailing conditions.
The T40 fan gun is easy to use and has won over many clients thanks to its performance at marginal temperatures. It also features a modern design which is compact and powerful at the same time. The side openings make maintenance easy. The T40 too, like all TechnoAlpin guns, has an oil-free compressor.
We are sure that the managers of the Cerro Catedral resort will be completely satisfied with their decision to trust TechnoAlpin's fan guns.
