Trust in TechnoAlpin
There are many ski resorts that again this year have decided to renew their trust in TechnoAlpin and its snow-making systems. During the expansion works in various resorts, in fact, the snow experts have been entrusted with numerous projects.
The Madonna di Campiglio (Italy) resort, a famous ski site located in the Brenta Dolomites, is one of the major national ski centers. For the 2014/2015 ski season, the resort managers have decided to make some changes to their snow-making system. The great innovation planned for the coming winter season is the Montagnoli Lake, a water storage reservoir in the Spinale area. The reservoir's perimeter will not be uniform so as to ensure that it blends in with the existing surroundings. The reservoir, together with the existing reserves, will allow an estimated (200,000 m³) of water to be available from the start of the season, in order to provide all of the slopes (160 hectares) with a basic snow covering. In view of this large project, TechnoAlpin will take care of expanding 5 pump stations, supplying and installing 2 TF10s on lifts, 3 mobile T40s and 79 Rubis Evo lances. In total, 6 km of cast-iron piping will be laid.
The ski area of Bansko (Bulgaria) is one of the most popular and modern ski resorts in Eastern Europe and the place where some of the Alpine Ski World Cup races are held. 75 km of slopes and 14 lifts which carry users up to an altitude of 2,560 m: guaranteed enjoyment for all skiing enthusiasts. As far as guaranteeing snow is concerned, the resort has placed its trust in TechnoAlpin's experience for years. The snow-making system will be further expanded this summer: the work is to be concentrated in the Schiligamika Plato area. In addition to 5 TF10s and 65 V3ees with centralized air, TA will also take care of burying 1,650 m of cast-iron pipes, 3,900 m of PE air pipes and 3,300 m of data cables.
Borovets (Bulgaria) has also decided to renew its trust in the snow experts of Bolzano. The length of the slopes totals around 58 km. They extend across three sites: Markudiik, Yastrebets and Sitnyakovo – Martinovi Baraki. It is in the last of these areas that TechnoAlpin will carry out the expansion works this summer. We will bury 3,400 m of cast-iron pipes, 4,800 m of data cables and install 7 T40s and 57 V3ees with centralized air. TechnoAlpin will also be responsible for expanding the PS100 pump station, which will be fitted with another pump.
The operators at Alpe d'Huez (France) have chosen TechnoAlpin for their new "Sarenne" project, which includes the installation of a new network of 4,300 m. 60 guns, mostly the Rubis Evo type, along with three T40 fan guns will be installed along the new network. The expansion program will be carried out at the same time as the construction of a new reservoir, which will have a total capacity of 165,000 m³ of water. TechnoAlpin will also construct a new machine room.
The Tatry Mountain Resort Group has chosen TechnoAlpin for the expansion of the Spindleruv Mlyn ski resort (Czech Republic): the project anticipates the construction of a machine room and the installation of 73 pits on which as many Rubis Evo lances will be installed with VAR and YB valves. The new machine room will have 3 pumps with a total capacity of 360 m³/h and a compressor capable of providing air to all the new guns installed.
There are many ski resorts that continue to rely on TechnoAlpin for their snow-making systems. Continue to follow us to discover the other interesting projects under construction!
