Matterhorn Zermatt Bergbahnen
The new construction of the 3S-railway at the small Matterhorn of the company Leitner is proceeding. On September 29, 2018 the highest 3S railway in the world – the Matterhorn glacier ride – opens. The modern system with 25 cabins à 28 seats lead to the Matterhorn glacier paradise (3883m field elevation), Europe`s highest mountain railway station.
Also this railway will be checked by the Winspect® rope inspection system after its opening. Already in 2017, a number of further cable railways were checked by the Winspect® rope inspection system and the staff was trained.
Daniel Krieg, the representative Technical Director of Zermatt Bergbahnen AG, informed the Winspect-Team after the successful installation in summer 2017:
“My first rope evaluation has passed ideal, thanks to the instruction by the Winspect partner seilPLAN and the examples, it was following easy for me, operating the system. On a rope length of 4350m, I received a bit more than 1300 differences. The result is convincing to me.”
We´re proud of the positive feedback of our customer and of more interesting setups.
