Geocache Description:

Cache vás zavede do Cerného Dolu v Krkonosich. This cache will take you to the Krkonose Mountains, Cerny Dul.


Tato cache je soucástí Bonusmulticache "OKOLIM LOMU" !
This cache is a part of Bonusmulticache "OKOLIM LOMU" !


Unikátní zarízení, které je posledním svého druhu v Cesku, mužete zaregistrovat pri ceste z Vrchlabí do Trutnova. Nad hlavami uvidíte lana se zavešenými vozíky a pod nimi bezpecnostní sít nad silnicí. Z vápence se v Kuncicích delají mleté vápence pro odsírení elektráren a vápencový písek pro výrobu suchých omítkových a maltových smesí.
Lanovka prepraví za smenu cca 800 tun vápence. Celková délka lanovky postavené v letech 1959 až 1963 je 8,35 kilometru. Na celé trase z Cerného Dolu do Kuncic je 49 podper a na nosném lane jezdí cca 250 vozíku. Nejvyšší podpera merí 42 metru. Kvuli snadnejší údržbe a výmene nosných lan je lanovka rozdelena do osmi úseku. Doba jízdy z jedné stanice do druhé je asi 45 minut. Celou lanovku obsluhuje pet lidí, tri na nakládce v lomu a dva na vykládce v Kuncicích.

Proc "Ekologická" lanovka ?

Zajímavostí lanovky je, že ke svému chodu nepotrebuje prakticky žádnou energii, protože funguje na spádovém systému. Z výse polozeného lomu jedoucí vozíky naplnené vápencem "pretahují" lehcí prázdné vozíky smerující od níze polozených Kuncic. Pouze k prvnímu rozjetí se pouzije elektromotor. Ten pak slouzí jako brzda a zároven vyrábí elektrinu pro cást zarízení lomu. Kdyby vápenec do Kuncic mela vozit nákladní auta, velmi by to zatízilo zivotní prostredí v okolních podkrkonosských obcích.

POZOR ! Nevstupujte pod lanovku, nebezpecí pádu predmetu z ní !!!




English
You may notice this unique system, which is the last of its kind in Czechia, on your way from Vrchlabí to Trutnov. Above your head you can see telphers suspended from ropes and a safety net beneath them above the road. In Kuncice, milled limestone for desulphurisation of power plants and limestone sand for the production of ready-mixed plaster and mortar mix are made of limestone.
The cableway transports approximately 800 tons of limestone per one shift. The cableway was built within the years 1959 - 1963 and its total length is 8.35 km. There are 49 supports along the whole cableway line leading from Cerný Dul to Kuncice, and about 250 telphers go on the carrying cable. The height of the highest support is 42 metres. The cableway is divided into eight sections, which makes maintenance and exchange of carrying cables easier. The time of limestone transport from one station into another is about 45 minutes. The cableway is operated by five people, three of them are in the loading station in the quarry and two of them are in the unloading station in Kuncice.

Why "Ecological" cableway?

An interesting fact about this cableway is the fact that it almost does not need any power for its operation because it works on the gravity system. Telphers filled with limestone and going from the quarry which is located higher "pull" lighter empty telphers going from Kuncice which is situated in a lower spot. An electromotor is needed only for starting the telphers up. This motor then serves as a brake and at the same time it produces electricity for a part of the quarry's equipment. If the limestone was transported to Kuncice by lorries, it would have bad effect on the environment in surrounding villages in the foothill of the Krkonoše Mountains.

ATTENTION! Do not enter under the cableway, danger of objects falling !!!

Doporucuji navstivit mystery cache, "Stara dama" ktera vas zavede k teze lanovce, ale o cca 3 km nize. POZOR, tato cache NENI soucasti multicache OKOLIM LOMU, ale velmi dobre ji doplnuje.

I would recommend to visit mystery cache, "Stara dama" which will lead you to the same cableway and the distance is approx. 3 km. ATTENTION, this cache IS NOT a part of multicache OKOLIM LOMU but it is a very good supplementation of it.
