Turning on the water at Hochalm II storage reservoirmore
The Hinterglemmer Bergbahnen have been able to start filling the expanded Hochalm II storage reservoir (Austria) on time – a modernization which has taken two years. The water reservoir for the snowmaking system of the Hochalm area was expanded in two construction stages. Works began on 4 June 2018, and water started flowing into the Hochalm II storage reservoir on 30 August 2019. Filling of the storage reservoir, which can hold 251,300 m³ of water, began on schedule.
By delivering innovative design and a clever construction sequence, ILF Consulting Engineers has been assisting its long-standing client with the expansion and strengthening of the Hochalm snow-making system since 2016. “The close cooperation with the Hinterglemmer Bergbahnen enabled our team to deliver an innovative project to secure snow conditions in Hinterglemm for future ski seasons,” says Gerhard Pumpernik, Head of the Department of Ski Resorts and Alpine Engineering at ILF.
ILF would like to thank the Hinterglemmer Bergbahnen for their confidence in ILF and congratulates them on accomplishing this milestone.
