The famous cable car connecting Cortina D’Ampezzo to the Faloria refuge, in the Monte Cristallo ski area, had to temporarily close in the middle of the summer season due to the expiration of the certification for the cable movement of the cabins. This unexpected situation led to the interruption of the service, at the request of ANSFISA, the Italian National Agency for Railways, Road and Motorway Infrastructure Safety, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport’s regulatory body.
The expiration of the certification, usually valid for seven years, slipped past the management company, which did not have time to renew it for the current tourist season. Consequently, after reopening on June 23rd, the cable car had to suspend service and will not operate for at least two weeks.
It is important to note how this unpleasant inconvenience could have been avoided if the company had adopted Certiblok, an innovative system based on blockchain technology for managing certifications. Through Certiblok, the expiration of the certification would have been monitored in real time, promptly notifying the plant management company before it expired.
In a context where safety and continuity of services are fundamental, the use of Certiblok would have ensured that the Faloria cable car constantly maintained its certification in order, guaranteeing a peaceful travel experience for tourists and greater peace of mind for the management company.
The temporary closure of the Faloria cable car, due to the expiration of the certification, highlights the importance of adopting innovative technologies like Certiblok for effectively managing certifications.
