Doppelmayr has been awarded the contracts for nine new lift installations at the Yanqing National Alpine Ski Center for the 2022 Winter Olympics Games in Beijing, China.
The agreement was signed in Beijing on 8 April 2018 in the presence of the Austrian President, Alexander van der Bellen, and the Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz.
Yanqing lies 74 kilometres northwest of central Beijing and is one of three venues that will host the Games. It is also the location of the Alpine Center, where the alpine skiing, bobsleigh, luge and skeleton events are to take place.
By the autumn of 2019, Doppelmayr is to build nine ropeway installations in Yanqing: five detachable 8-passenger gondola lifts, two detachable 6-seater chairlifts with bubbles and two fixed-grip quad chairlifts. This means the company has won the invitations to tender for all nine lift installations so far envisaged for Yanqing.
Alexander Klimmer, Executive Sales Director of Doppelmayr Seilbahnen GmbH, said: “For Doppelmayr, the contract award for the 2022 Winter Olympics and the renewed trust placed in our products are fantastic. We are delighted that we have again been given the opportunity to put our performance to the test for this major sporting event.”
