Genova – Gate

Design of the new Erzelli/Airport railway station of the Genoa-Ventimiglia line, and connection by means of a hybrid cable-car RopeTaxi system for the connection between the railway station and the airport passenger terminal. The complete stop of vehicles at the station, made technically possible by the innovative RopeTaxi system, guarantees full use of the system and comfortable boarding and disembarking even by passengers with luggage or strollers.

The GATE project consists of two distinct sub-projects:

  • the new railway stop of Erzelli / Aeroporto, located on the Genoa-Ventimiglia line, between the stations of Sestri Ponente and Cornigliano
  • the cable connection system between the new stop and the airport passenger terminal.

The solution adopted for the connection system is that of a cluster cableway to and fro with 10-seater vehicles, with a capacity of between 600 and 700 people per hour.

The system provides for the stop of the cabins at the station, to allow easy access and exit, even for passengers with reduced mobility.

By virtue of the transport needs, it is expected that the plant can operate for over 5,000 hours/year.

The technological solution adopted guarantees low operating and maintenance costs.

The project is part of a broader infrastructure investment framework that includes the modernization of the airport and the creation of the future intermodal airport hub (GATE 2 project), and in the future also the connection with the Erzelli settlement area.

The station buildings are designed to integrate perfectly with the existing airport terminal and the new railway station.

Feasibility study of the connection between the Sorrento railway station and the village of Sant’Agata sui due Golfi. In order to ensure full urban integration and minimize the visual impact of the work within the urban fabric of Sorrento, the urban section was designed underground. The solution was made possible thanks to the hybrid rope-self-propelled system, which guarantees minimal oscillations in the rail section and is therefore compatible with tunnel segments.

Skyway Monte Bianco

Defined as the “eighth Wonder of the World”, SkyWay Monte Bianco was designed by Dimensione Ingenierie, which also took care of the construction supervision. The cable car system consists of two segments: Pontal d’Entreves- Pavillon and Pavillon- Punta Herbronner, where, on the iconic Terrazza dei Ghiacciai, it is possible to enjoy a spectacular view that embraces all the Western Alps.

Genova – Forte Begato

Connection via hybrid cable-self-propelled system between the port of Genoa and Forte Begato, with an intermediate station. The first section presents the challenging characteristics of an urban segment, and involves the overflight of buildings of considerable height within the Lagaccio district and the installation of line supports with a height greater than 83m; while the second section has characteristics similar to the route of a traditional mountain cableway.

Aosta – Pila Cable Car

Cable car that connects the city of Aosta to the Pila ski area, with two intermediate stations in Les Fleurs and in Plan Praz. The plant, in addition to a castle function, also takes on the role of Local Public Transport.

Col Checrouit – Arp

Final project for the replacement of the current Youla and Arp cable cars in the Courmayeur Mont Blanc area with a “to and fro” cableway system that connects Col Checrouit to the Arp Crest.
