In the summer of 2015, construction work for the new 'Eisgratbahn', a tricable ropeway on the Stubai Glacier, began. In the fall of 2015, TEUFELBERGER delivered the first four STRESSLESS carrying ropes for this tricable ropeway. The delivery of another four STRESSLESS carrying ropes and two SOLITEC® hauling ropes followed in spring 2016. Since October 2016, this unidirectional ropeway has the capacity to carry a maximum number of 3,014 passengers per hour up to the Stubai Glacier.
