The Swiss ski resort of Scuol Motta Naluns, located between the Silvretta peaks and the Engadin Dolomites in the Engadin region of Scuol Samnaun Val Müstair, offers a wide variety of ski slopes, over more than 70 km long for beginners as well as the most demanding skiers. Bergbahnen Scuol AG, the operator of the ski resort, a long-time customer of TechnoAlpin fan guns, is doing a major snowmaking project this year.
This is the second phase of an investment program, scheduled over three years, signed with TechnoAlpin. Indeed, after several winter seasons with difficult snow conditions, the operator decided to optimize the snow production on the slopes of the ski area in order to guarantee both optimal skiing and the best possible snow quality for its guests.
Launched in 2016, Scuol's snowmaking work has already enabled the installation of 9 fan guns, TF10 in its mobile version and 2 classic M12 fan guns, as well as ATASSplus the snowmaking management software from TechnoAlpin. During this first phase of the snow investment program, new water pipes were also installed.
The 2017 phase includes the delivery and installation of 15 TF10s on towers, 1 TF10 Piano in a mobile version, and also 13 V3ee lances. In addition to these snow guns, a second section of water pipes will be installed and a new machine room with 1 compressor will be built, in order to ensure the supply of air for V3ee lances. Indeed, the operator in consultation with TechnoAlpin chose the energy performance with the "ee" version of the V3 lance. The V3ee consumes twice as less energy as the standard V3 snow gun, while offering a very high quality of snow with 4 combinations of flow possible. For the fans, the TF10 model will ensure the production of snow. The TF10 is the most powerful fan on the market. And since its launch, ski resort operators have clearly understood the advantages of this machine: the combination of power and performance, to guarantee the volume and quality of production, key markers of TechnoAlpin products.
For its snowmaking project, the operator of the ski resort of Scuol Motta Naluns wanted to have a unique and reliable partner for an operation as important as the overhaul of his snow-making facility. This is why Bergbahnen Scuol AG has called on TechnoAlpin, the market leader in the field of snowmaking solutions, to carry out this project. And naturally, TechnoAlpin is very proud to contribute to the success of the Swiss station for next and subsequent seasons.
