Yesterday we had a clearance in the weather and have been able to commence removal of all damaged components and expect to have this complete by the weekend.
Doppelmayr are fast tracking delivery of all necessary plans and specifications that may be required to achieve reconstruction of a new tower. We have engaged a NZ engineering workshop to undertake this work. Current expectations are this will take up to two weeks from when the damaged components are delivered to their workshop.
From the preliminary assessment completed to date our best estimate is the lift will be out of action for 3 – 4 weeks.
