Three world records for a cable transport system

A new cable car line up to the highest peak in Germany, Zugspitze, located in the Bavarian Alps, has been in operation  after the completion of two-and-a-half-year works on the highest-rise site of this country, Xinhua informs Thursday, according to Agerpres .

The cable car line traps three world records for a pendular cable transport system. On the one hand, measuring 127 meters in height, its steel support pillars are the highest used for this type of transport.

Then at 1,950 meters this system will have the highest altitude difference on a section. Third, it will exceed the largest distance between the pillars, at a distance of 3,213 meters.

The construction costs of the cable car line amounted to 50 million euros due to the difficult conditions at the high altitude site and in a low temperature area. Among the main challenges were the removal of the snow and ice from the top equipment and the delivery of the supporting pillars.

"Even veteran engineers have forced their limits within this project ," said Ueli Spinner of ABB, based in Switzerland.

Cabins can carry up to 580 passengers per hour to Zugspitze.

The new line replaces the former 50-year-old Eibsee cable system and will eliminate the very long waiting times for which it was well known by tripling capacity.

Transporting gondolas on such a slopes up to 104% at a speed of 10.6 meters per second requires a significant amount of energy, which is provided by two 800-kilowatt three-phase engines made available by ABB are housed in the valley station of the cable transport system.
