Hydro-Power plant Linthal 2015.
The installation of the cable crane system was complex due to the difficult accessibility. All materials needed to be brought through a tunnel to the construction site, furthermore the Project was marked by a short timing. Finally the cableway by LCS Cable Cranes, operative 24 hours a day, contributed significantly to the construction of the hydro power electric plant being the transport solution for heavy loads. The hydro-power-plant should start to be operative in 2015.
