Success for DemacLenko in Georgia

DemacLenko is to be the sole supplier of snowmaking systems to the Gudauri and Didveli ski areas from 2015

DemacLenko's development strategy includes a strong focus on emerging markets. This strategy has paid off: our company has been awarded the contract for two important snowmaking system construction projects in the Gudauri and Didveli areas of Georgia. Georgia's first ski slopes were built in the Soviet era, and in recent years public and private funding has focused on modernising old systems or expanding them significantly.
In 2013 our sister company POMA sold a new GD10 gondola lift to Gudauri, not far from the Russian border, to improve the old system. The work to be undertaken in Gudauri by DemacLenko involves the installation of a fully-automated system, including 29 lances and 29 fibreglass pits. In order to offer the client a complete solution, DemacLenko is also building a suitable pumping station for the system.

Meanwhile, the smaller resort of Didveli will be provided with a new snowmaking system comprising 36 fibreglass pits, 34 lances and two fan guns. A new pumping station is also planned for this project, as well as a cooling system.

Both projects will be completed and ready to use by December 2015.

Thanks to the perfect synergy between us and our associate POMA, we have taken an important step towards obtaining a leading position in the market. We hope that our collaboration as part of the HTI group can be further strengthened in the years to come.
