Chairlift Gran Sometta
Among the novelties of winter 2022 - 23 a new six-seater chairlift to replace the Gran Sometta ski lift, will guarantee a quick connection between the ski areas of Valtournenche and Breuil-Cervinia, a detachable six-seater chairlift, the new chairlift will be equipped with new EcoDrive system.
The speed of the cable car can now automatically vary depending on the number of skiers waiting to get into the cabin.
Fewer people in line, less need to clear the queue quickly. And by slowing down by just one meter per second, energy savings of 20% can be generated. EcoDrive, this is the name of the technological solution conceived and built by Leitner, a South Tyrolean company of the international HTI group, therefore represents an immediate response to the energy price increases which, starting from the upcoming ski season, will have an impact on the budgets of alpine plant engineers.
