Garaventa Starts Assembly For The World's First TRI-Line In Hoch-Ybrig

The assembly of the mountain station for the world's first TRI-Line recently started in Hoch-Ybrig. The supporting structure of the mountain station is currently being assembled. Next comes the assembly of the station conveyors and the drive.

An international assembly team consisting of fitters from Doppelmayr Seilbahnen GmbH, Inauen-Schätti AG and Garaventa AG is full of motivation and the work is progressing well.

"The TRI-Line is compact and, thanks to the 3S advantages, can cope with the wind that prevails in our area, which is a decisive criterion for the important feeder cable car. Thanks to the new cabins with their comfortable seats and generous glazing, we can now offer passengers significantly more comfort," says Urs Keller, CEO in Hoch-Ybrig.

With the TRI-Line, Doppelmayr is ushering in the next cable car era. The innovative circulation system combines the advantages of the proven D-Line with those of the powerful three-cable system. Compact stations and cable car components, spacious cabins for up to 20 people, a newly developed drive and a transport capacity of up to 8,000 people per hour and direction are the highlights of the TRI-Line.

Drive as a technical highlight

The core of the development of the TRI-Line is based on a new design approach to the drive. The basis is the use of the D-Line coupling clamp: “On this basis, we were able to create a simple and maintenance-friendly drive. The individual components are easy to handle. Another advantage is the easy cable routing in the stations. This allows us to use the compact D-Line stations and their components.
