Bartholet Maschinenbau AG, the Swiss expert for ropeway and amusement park installations, has built a new chairlift for Andermatt Sedrun Sport AG. This 6-seater chairlift was completed and put into operation in 2016. The special feature in this project was the total of 276 heated and comfortable sports car leather seats.


The customer required a system for the energy transfer of the ultracaps. This ensures the energy supply, of the seat heating integrated in the leather seats, during the ride between the uphill and downhill stations.

Our solution

Entrusted with this task, VAHLE developed a switchgear combination for the voltage-free up and down movement of the current collectors on the conductor system as well as special introduction funnels. For this purpose, the U25/90AE conductor system was the optimum solution. It ensures a DC power supply for up to 3 chairlifts in the stations.

Added value for the customer

Reliable and extremely resistant to external weather conditions.
