Ropeway students present exciting final projects

With approximately 1500 students and more than 50 teachers, the Landesberufsschule Hallein is the largest vocational school in the province of Salzburg. Since its founding in 1877, the school has continued to develop and has made a name for itself with its competence center for metalworking professions.

A wide variety of professions in the commercial, locksmith, electrical, carpentry, stonemasonry, masonry and tailoring trades can be learned and practiced there. For practice purposes, a Sunkid Moving Carpet has been available to students for several years.

For the successful completion of the training, a project-related task must be prepared and presented.

The presentations of the graduating class in ropeway technology took place recently and were followed with excitement by the media and partners. The highlight was a self-planned and built, fully functional small ski lift, which was presented by David Haas and Jonas Wallner.

The two students and developers are employed by the Bavarian Arber Bergbahn.

They spent 1.5 years planning their small ski lift and assembled it within 80 hours in the ropeway hall of the vocational school. The final project was supported by an endless spliced plastic rope from the company Sunkid.

The project was accompanied by Ing. Roland Gruber and Andreas Spitzelseder.

A total of 8,100 euros was invested in the small ski lift with low rope guide, which will remain in the ropeway hall for training purposes. Both students graduated with a grade point average of 1.0.
