TechnoAlpin has won the public tender for the expansion of the Jahorina Olympic Center’s snowmaking system.
The Center, which is south-east of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, played host to the women’s downhill skiing races at the 1984 Winter Olympics.
The ski resort has drawn up major plans for the extension of its snowmaking system for the coming winter season. The work will be completed in time for the start of the season and involves several sections of the snowmaking system.
The water supply will be reinforced by two powerful, high-pressure pumps and two central compressors. The two high-pressure pumps will have a total output of 100 l/s. A mobile pumping station will provide additional support for the water supply system. The water requirements will be met by the construction of a new reservoir. It will hold 75 000 m³ of water and will be fitted with a reservoir aeration system.
Snowmaking capacity will also be reinforced by the addition of new snow guns. Cast iron pipes, data cables and electric cables will be laid across 6.5 km of slopes. 68 concrete pits will be laid for snow guns, while a total of 25 new fan guns and 40 snow lances of different types will be installed. These include the TR8, T40 and TF10 fan guns as well as V3 and V3ee snow lances. They will will provide coverage for the ski slopes in the area served by the Ogorjelica I and Poljice six-seater chairlifts. ATASSplus software will be installed for fully automatic control of the snowmaking systems.
