As part of a plan by the government of Montenegro to boost tourism in the north of the country, Leitner ropeways is to complete two ropeways at new ski resorts in the Bjelasica mountain range by the fall of 2019.
The 6-seater chairlift Cmiljaca Z7, which will be equipped with Leitner DirectDrive and heated seats, will become the centrepiece of a new ski area. It is expected to have a transport capacity of 2600 passengers per hour. Meanwhile, the ski area complex near the town of Bijelo Polje will provide ready access to the newly created slopes.
In addition, an aerial tramway will connect the Podvrh monastery with the Dalovic cave. The Djalovica Pecina – featuring two cabins and fixed grips – will extend directly over the ravine of the Bistrica River over a span of 800 metres. This should significantly improve the hitherto difficult access to a partially explored cave world. So far, approximately 16 kilometres of tunnels have been explored, although it is believed that the cave has a total length of about 200 kilometres.
Montenegro’s Prime Minister, Duško Markovic, said: “In Leitner ropeways, we have found a great partner for our strategic development projects in the north. This not only creates the basis for more tourism, but also new jobs. It is my pleasure to be working with the world’s leading ropeway company on two projects for our country.”
