On May 23rd, China ENFI signed a consulting and design contract with Hubei Shennong Tourism Investment Group Co., Ltd. for its Hubei Shennongjia Shenwudang Passenger Cableway Project.
Shennongjia Scenic Spot is an original ecological tourist area integrating strange trees, flowers, caves and peaks, and the exotic customs of the mountain people, and themed on the reflection of primitive nature, antiquity, adventure seeking and secret exploration. Located in the northwest of Hubei Province, it takes original forest scenery as its background and the legend of Shennong and ancient mountain and forest culture as its connotations.
The east-west direction of the Shennongjia mountain chain in the scenic spot spans the southwest of the Shennongjia Forestry District. The scenic spot has a large scope and its terrain reaches as high as 2,700 m. Numerous passenger cableways are planned and some have already been built. Shenwudang Cableway of Phase I has a line level distance of around 1,200 m and a line altitude difference of around 500 m. It will adopt a single-cable circular detachable grip cabin cableway for 8 persons. The cableway has a rather long cable, large altitude difference, steep gradient in parts and considerable technical difficulties, which demand higher requirements for the design.
China ENFI will give full play to its technical advantages, keep improving, strive to design a modernized high-level passenger cableway for the owners and leave the footprint of the ENFI Cableway brand in the ancient and mysterious Shennongjia Scenic Spot.
