Yesterday (August 23, 2006), Ministers of Finance, Capital Investments and Trade, Tourism and Services, Mlađan Dinkić, Velimir Ilić and Bojan Dimitrijević, marked the commencement of works on construction of new four-seat ski lifts "Duboka 1" and "Duboka 2".
The National Investment Plan set aside about 4m EUR for the construction of these ski lifts. However, total value of the lifts is about 7.8m EUR. The construction works will be finished and the ski lifts will be put into operation at the end of December 2006.
The capacity of both lifts after the completion of the first phase of works will amount to 1,800 skiers per hour, whereas that number will increase to 2,400 skiers per hour at the end of the second phase of works. The speed of the ski lifts will be 5 m/sec.
The manufacturer of the equipment is Austrian company "Doppelmayr", which provided five-year credit for procurement of equipment.
