Today, the Chinese company Beijing Raissun Investment Co. Ltd, owner of Thaiwoo Ski Resort, and the French company POMA, ropeway transportation specialist, signed a strategic partnership to develop Thaiwoo-expected to be one of the sites hosting the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Thaiwoo chose to lean on French expertise to develop Thaiwoo Ski Resort, one of the future's biggest Chinese ski resorts.
Through this agreement, Thaiwoo Ski Resort will choose POMA as the preferential supplier for all coming ropeways in his ski resort. POMA has already built three ropeways in the resort: one 2-section gondola lift and two detachable-grip bubble chairlifts. POMA is excited to build all future ropeways in the ski area. The investment Thaiwoo plans to allocate to ropeways may exceed EUR200 million over the next 5 to 10 years. To optimize ropeway maintenance, POMA will open a spare parts storage center in the Chongli region. The center will have POMA teams available who will be dedicated to maintaining the Thaiwoo installations.
