Generation project for South Tyrol's dry zone

Numerous plans have been developed and rejected to supply water to the farmers on the Tschögglberg in the area around Bolzano, who are plagued by water shortages. However, a solution to the problem has now been found. From March 2021, construction companies have been working under high pressure on a record-breaking supply pipeline that will deliver water from the Sarntal Valley to Jenesien, around 20 km away - entirely under its own pressure. The pipeline, which will overcome a drop of 16 m, was mainly constructed using shear and tension-resistant ductile iron pipes from Tiroler Rohre GmbH (TRM). It will guarantee a reliable water supply for the farms on the Tschögglberg for decades to come, ensuring their survival even in increasingly dry times.
