Avalanche safety: field experiments in Les 7 Laux for the latest MND Safety innovations

Installed during last winter on the French ski area, the various innovative solutions of the Obell’X range are experiencing their first winter season of experimentation allowing better knowledge and continuous improvement of the product in real conditions as well as a snow data collection. A win-win situation for MND and Les 7 Laux, committed to avalanche risk prevention. 

Pioneer and historical leader of non-explosive preventive avalanche triggering systems for more than 30 years, MND SAFETY continues to innovate by developing its O’BellX range to double its power with the O’BellX option +. Installed and commissioned on 7 sites around the world, Les 7 Laux is one of the dedicated testing areas for this innovation. 

Jean-François Genevray, Director of Les 7 Laux ski area “As part of the commissioning of 9 GAZEX solutions last winter, the 7 Laux chose to experiment with the Obell’X option + to discover the product and test it in real conditions. Safety for our customers and for the staff is a priority, the objective is to be able to collect data on the typology of avalanches on our ski area and to exchange with MND teams on this subject in a continuous improvement process. »

While weather conditions were particularly conducive to avalanche triggering, MND SAFETY teams alongside managers on site were able to carry out numerous preventive actions to ensure safety on the slopes, for skiers, teams but also for infrastructures while collecting a large amount of technical information on the Obell’x option+ product.

François-Xavier Villalonga, Head of Sales Engineering MND SAFETY “Very committed to innovative technologies as well as to the customer/supplier relationship, the 7 Laux immediately accepted a partnership to become a field of innovation. Because securing ski area is a priority shared between MND and the resort, we are continuously sharing data, improving our knowledge of the terrain and the product. » 

Installed and commissioned last winter on 7 sites around the world, including 5 in France in Val Thorens, Morzine, Flaine, Les Carroz and Les 7 Laux, the O’BellX option + offers twice the power than its initial version. An extension and a constant innovation of our range to better adapt to all terrains integrating all the advantages of this 100% removable system thanks to its patented transport hook facilitating its installation and maintenance by helicopter. And always with our patented technology without explosives and equipped with a gas mixture (H2-O2), reliable, easy to use and without waste, respectful of the environment.

A solution not to be missed on MND booth at Mountain Planet trade show to be held from April 26 to 28, 2022 in Grenoble, France.
