SkiWelt Brixen im Thale equipped for the future
SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental is one of the largest and most modern ski resorts in the world. The 9 direct access points from the villages of Brixen im Thale, Ellmau, Going, Hopfgarten, Itter, Kelchsau, Scheffau, Söll and Westendorf with more than 284 km of pistes perfectly prepared each day, as well as 21 downhill runs await their guests. In July 2018, a construction project was started in Brixen im Thale in preparation for the major Zinsberg cable railway planned for next year. During the course of this construction work, the existing snowmaking pipeline is being rerouted and its pipe dimensions enlarged. Ductile iron pipes from the Tiroler Rohre GmbH (TRM) company in nominal sizes DN 80, 250 and 300 are being used over a length of just about 1,000 m.
Under the direction of an expert snowmaker, all snowmaking pipelines are carefully installed by employees of SkiWelt Brixen im Thale. The fact that the tried and tested VRS®-T socket joint from TRM is easy to assemble makes the laying of the ductile iron pipes considerably simpler and guarantees the greatest degree of reliability for the operation of the snowmaking equipment – even at high pressures.
