HBTU Ropeway Haifa, Israel

The university of Haifa and the Technion are located elevated on a hillside above the city, hence a ropeway is the ideal solution to provide efficient public transport for the students. The installation of Doppelmayr was built during the peak of the COVID19 pandemic under highly challenging conditions and covers a total distance of 4,3 km with 6 stations buildings, divided in 3 sections. Since the team of Seilbahnbüro Schupfer was already involved in the very early stages of the project, providing the safety report, we were also asked to perform the approval inspection on the entire installation and the initial MRT-testing of the three ropes. Only for the grand opening we stepped aside and let Federal Minister Schramböck and Federal Minister Schallenberg do their jobs.
