As part of the construction of Huy cable car in Belgium, MND has entrusted the famous Swiss body designer Calag-Gangloff with the production and assembly of the new cabins, a true emblem of this urban cable transport infrastructure. These tailor-made cabins have been designed and manufactured in accordance with safety instructions and requirements in terms of design and weight. Their strong and lightweight aluminum construction ensures high durability, to allow uninterrupted operation for many years and thus reduce maintenance costs.
Thanks to their large and curved glass surfaces, the new cabins will allow users to have a stunning view of the environment. Modern and spacious, they are equipped with two benches and a disabled person area, allowing them to comfortably accommodate a dozen passengers.
In Huy, work on the pylons continues, with the reinforcement and replacement of certain structures. Machinery is being installed in terminals and the renovation of buildings is nearing completion.
The cable car should go back to work at the end of 2023.
