Bettmeralp / Switzerland

Many roads lead up a mountain

Our XL screw compactor system with wood crusher, roll-off container and container moving stations was allowed to take a special road in Switzerland: hanging from a passenger gondola.

This unusual project was planned for over 2 years, until November 2020, when the extensive installation within the waste disposal building could be started below the Bettmerhorn summit in the canton of Valais.

The system is filled with waste at the mountain station of the gondola, where 2 containers are always ready to be filled; 2 replacement containers remain in the valley. The filled containers are brought by the passenger gondola down to the valley for the disposal. The container moving stations are equipped with a weighing cell, so that the permissible total weight of the container is not exceeded for the „flying“ transport.
