In Lushan, the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group has set yet another milestone in the ropeway industry: the very first tricable ropeway installation in China.
Visitors to Lushan can enjoy the region’s particularly agreeable climate. The fact that it is always significantly cooler than in the lower-lying areas around the city of Jiujiang makes Lushan an ideal place for rest and relaxation, especially at the height of the summer. With many guesthouses and hotels to choose from as well as the outstanding natural surroundings, guests have every reason to spend time here. The new ropeway installation provides a significant improvement in comfort for visitors. It will operate in the summer and winter, and replaces a bus service that covered a very winding, 15-kilometer road to Lushan.
The tricable ropeway is a detachable continuous-movement system that was chosen specifically for the project in Lushan. The region was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1990s. The 3S lift crosses the protected area with ease as the ropeway engineers created an unsupported rope span of almost 1,600 meters in length between two towers. In conjunction with the required transport capacity, this was the only ropeway system that was able to meet the high requirements.
