Regency Casino Mont Parnes
Greece currently has nine gaming operations. The Mont Parnes Casino Resort in the Mt. Parnitha National Park is the fourth largest with an annual revenue of around EUR 90 million. The resort includes the actual casino itself, a hotel, bar/café, restaurant and meeting rooms.
The Mont Parnes resort can be reached by ropeway; the infrastructure is currently being completely refurbished. In the first stage of construction, an underground parking lot with spaces for 1,800 vehicles was completed at the bottom station along with the Funitel. In May, the old Habegger reversible aerial tram with 30-passenger cars originally built in 1972 closed down and is scheduled to be demolished at a later date. It has now been replaced by a modern Funitel from Doppelmayr, which can still be used at wind force 10 (storms of approx. 100 km/h, 60 mph). (The old tram had to stop operating at wind speeds of around 50 km/h, 30 mph).
Wind stability is extremely important because the mountain peak is frequently exposed to severe winds. In a further stage of construction, a new casino, VIP casino, 5-star hotel, restaurants, bar, etc. are to be built on a 5 acre site, while the existing facilities continue to operate. The refurbishment and construction work will be organized so that the casino will not have to close its doors. As a special service during normal operation of the lift, VIP customers will be able to board luxury cabins from an exclusive VIP area. A separate rail is provided to allow the VIP cabins to travel from this area onto the ropeway. This installation is Doppelmayr’s first Funitel with electric grip force testing devices. In view of the national park location, only three towers were permitted on the line. A special combined sheave assembly was used on tower 2 to ensure proper rope guidance. High availability was a major priority, as the lift operates 20 hours a day. This made it necessary to install two high-power drives. The drive capacity was designed to allow one drive to be shut down for a week for maintenance work without affecting passenger service. Diesel-driven emergency units are also on standby. Doppelmayr was responsible for the complete installation (with the exception of the civil engineering work).
