it is high. For the safety of the athletes,
those installations must be removable
during the events,” he said.
Mayr says TechnoAlpin, which produces
about 5,000 snow guns annually,
prioritized the production of equipment
for Pyeongchang Olympics in
order to successfully meet its delivery
Together, Yongpyong and Phoenix
Park have invested almost $6 million in
their snowmaking systems. They each
have three fully automated pumping
stations and there are now 250 TechnoAlpin
snow guns on the two sites.
Of these, 150 are TF10 snow guns that
were installed specifically for the 2018
Winter Olympic Games.
The TF10 is touted as the most powerful
snow gun on the market, with 24
nozzles and eight nucleators that produce
high output snow with 16 control
“TechnoAlpin has proven, more than
just once, that the products are outstanding.
Especially in terms of automation,
TechnoAlpin is providing the
state of the art,” said Mayr.
