The first T40s will be delivered to Tauplitz
The assembly lines in TechnoAlpin's production department have speeded up. For the snow experts, May to December is peak season. Notwithstanding the production levels, excitement has also been building in the assembly department. The reason: the first model T40 snow guns were ready for delivery.
The T40 is the successor to the famous M18. Some components have been optimized whilst technology which has now been consolidated, such as the ceramic nozzles or the oil-free compressor, has been retained. One innovation is seen in the nozzle mountings; designed to simplify removing the heating elements considerably. Modifications have also been made to the water filter. The filter's Wedge Wire profile means even longer durability and makes cleaning easier.
The first 14 T40s were delivered to Tauplitz, in Salzkammergut (AUT). Where, currently, they are installing a new snow-making system. Besides the T40 fan guns, 14 T60s und 38 lances are being sent to Ausseerland. A reservoir, with a capacity of 77,500 m³, will also be installed. The 14 T40s will be mounted on 3.5 meter lifts.
