In the heart of the Stelvio National Park is the Pejo 3000 cable car, comprised of two 100-seat cabins, which, in minutes, takes skiers and hikers from Tarlenta (2,000 m/6,600 feet) on the valley floor, all the way up to the old "Mantova" refuge (3,000 m/9,900 feet) in the heart of the Ortles-Cevedale mountain range in the Italian Alps.
PENETRON was used to repair the plinths of the cable car structure. The deterioration of the plinths reached a depth of over 10 cm (4 inches) below the original concrete surface. The extreme simplicity of applying PENETRON made it possible to carry out the repairs close to the "Mantova" refuge end station despite the challenging Alpine weather conditions and accessibility constraints to the actual repair site, which was limited to the cable cars.
