Object description:

The Aletsch Bahnen AG intend to build a new feeder lift from Fiesch to Fiescheralp (Kühboden) for the winter season 2019 / 2020. The larger of the two existing reversible aerial tramways with 100-seater cabins is to be replaced. A later dismantling of the smaller reversible aerial tramway with the 34-passenger cabins will take place in 2020. With the construction of a circulating aerial tramway from the new public transport hub in Fiesch, the transport capacity to Kühboden can be increased and a continuous flow of passengers and goods can be guaranteed. 13 masts with a height of 10-20 metres are necessary for the routing of the new 10-cabin circulating railway from Fiesch to Kühboden.


Special requirements:

  • Mountain construction site
  • Short construction time
  • Weather dependent
