Demaclenko Update- new projects for Italy
Our blue snow guns on the Dolomite peaks of San Martino di Castrozza
Demaclenko was recently awarded an important project in Trentino in the ski resort of San Martino di Castrozza. In part restructuring, and in part new construction, this 3 Mio Euro project will be divided into several stages.
The first stage is in progress and involves the construction of a new lake with a 46,000 cubic meter capacity which is the basis to assure the water supply. Further stages involve the laying of about 4,300 m. of ductile iron pipes (2,300 of which in 2015) and the construction of a new pump house which will include 4 pumps of 315 and 160 kW with a total flow rate of 132 litres/sec. In total, San Martino will rely on its existing snow making machines, plus additionally 4 Ventus and 8 Titan fan guns mounted on fixed towers. The artificial lake, close to the track slopes, will be monitored just like the other components by the Demaclenko Snowvisual control software.
The construction project will be completed in 2016.
