Retrofitting and optimisation

The first significant snowmaking installations are now some thirty years old. They require technological changes and energy improvements to upgrade the facilities to modern standards.

Our approach is to help you integrate the latest developments and balance the need to upgrade with economic drivers. We analyse the degree of replacement or integration of new components required on a case-by-case basis according to the level of equipment obsolescence.

SUFAG products are developed and designed to be compatible with existing systems. The retrofitting compatibility of our range allows us to replace obsolete equipment at a lower cost to you.

A range of solutions is available:

  • Full replacement of existing equipment
  • Adaptation of existing equipment
  • The application of technology with common resource management

Our teams will work with you to select and design the most suitable technical and economic solution for your needs.

A large number of operators have successfully upgraded their facilities using one of these three options.
