Owl’s Head in Québec Province, Canada, has commissioned a new snow making system from TechnoAlpin following several months of discussion. Project work could begin as early as November this year.

TechnoAlpin will deliver the entire facility as a turnkey system and will take care of the coordination arrangements with local subcontractors. The work will mainly involve replacing the 16 km of water and air pipes alongside the full reconstruction of the existing pumping station. A total of 318 Rubis Evo snow lances will be installed along the slopes – 69 of which will be the automatic version – along with eight mobile TR8 fan guns of the latest generation.

In addition, 69 shafts and 188 hydrants will be installed, and at the same time TechnoAlpin staff will lay 2.8 km of data cables. The entire snowmaking system will then ultimately be controlled with the ATASSplus control system.

Laying the pipes will be one of the biggest challenges in the project; some of the lines will have to be laid above ground because of the ground conditions, will always have to be drained in winter to prevent frost damage.
