Experience the most innovative snow machine. The ultimate cost and time saving solution for keeping inner cities, ports, airports and logistics centres open during snow season.
SNOCOM operates from its head office at Schiphol, The Netherlands. Since 2013, SNOCOM has been designing notable innovations in the field of snow removal. Snowfall and snow on the ground can severely disrupt daily life, often leading to substantial economic damage. Any significant amount of snow should be removed as quickly as possible. However, the techniques currently in use for snow removal have not changed much since their introduction and have several disadvantages such as poor cost effectiveness and a relatively large environmental impact. SNOCOM’s Snowcuber is the answer to snow-related issues in inner cities, ports, airports and logistics centres. Wherever snow needs to be transported, the Snowcuber has a big advantage over the existing Snowblowers, which are only useful in rural areas and open fields.
The environmental requirements also push winter operations for a different approach. Cities need to reduce traffic movements (congestion and CO2) while handling the snow and keep cities open during or just after snow events – as soon as possible. SNOCOM’s volume reduction technique is different and unique. It significantly helps to reduce emissions and movements. In an average winter, Montreal snow dumping sites receive approximately 13 million cubic meters (325,000 truckloads) of snow. It’s a real ballet of heavy machinery and trucks!
SNOCOM’s machine, named the Snowcuber, ingests large amounts of snow and exploits the compressibility of the snow to reduces the snow’s volume by a factor of 2. Can you imagine what SNOCOM`s Snowcuber means for CO2 emissions if you can reduce the number of transports up to 50%? The additional advantage is that it also saves a lot of money on hiring trucks. Because of that customers call our machine the money-making machine.
