Fansipan cable car project

Four cable crane systems installed in the north of Vietnam for the realisation of a tourism project.

  • LCS has delivered four cable crane systems to the north of Vietnam, where the Austrian ropeway company Doppelmayr constructed a 6.2 km long cable car. This cable car is part of a tourism project of the city of Sa Pa and will bring tourists to the 3,143 m high Fansipan mountain. Fansipan is the highest mountain in Indochina and is located in the Lao Cai Province in northwest Vietnam, 9 km southwest of Sa Pa city in the Hoang Lien Son Mountains.

    The cable crane system reached a height of 3,007 m, where the top station of the cable car was constructed, overcoming an altitude of more than 1,600 m. The four systems were installed to transport construction material, machinery and parts of the cable car. Together the systems reached a total length of 7,25 km. They were assembled one behind the other and located parallel to the planned cable car.
