As a part of the infrastructure measures at the Sonnblick Observatory, the old emergency power generator is replaced by a more modern and better adapted to the air-chemical measuring conditions.
For increased safety the placement of the generator is outsourced from the observatory - to the Pendelhütte/Pendel hut. The Austrian Alpine Association, Section Rauris kindly provides the room underneath the winter camp.
But the neglected room needed substantial renovation work.
Despite the cold, the work started in March 2017 and now we are on the home stretch. In August 2017, the new generator is to be delivered. The photo shows the room in the Pendelhütte in the raw state. The new home of the emergency generator is developing!
