Precise weather information ensures trouble-free operation

During the winter season street maintenance services are responsible for providing full performance at a time when "nothing works anymore". To achieve this, accurate weather information is essential. We support you with on-site measurements, with current webcam images, with location-specific weather bulletins, websites specifically targeted to this issue, as well as through personal dialogue with our experts and tailor-made training courses.

For aviation we create and operate weather stations suitable for flight weather, take care of data management and provide the data via appropriate portals or web services. If necessary, we supplement the stations with webcams in order to be able to deliver current live images of the weather at known trouble spots.

For the planning of cableways, we create site-specific wind load assessments. In cooperation with SISAG we operate local weather information systems, which measure, record and forecast wind and other weather data. On the one hand the system alerts those responsible for the security of the infrastructure, while on the other hand it supports the operators of snow makers in the planning process. Large destinations, e.g. the Aletsch Arena, already benefit from this valuable system.
