High speed and precision: skyliner supports Digital X 2021 Cologne

Taking place in the shadow of the 266-meter tall “Colonius”, german telecommunications company Telekom hosted the Digital X 2021. According to the organizers “the largest digitization initiative in Europe”. Two skyliners, an sl16 and the so-called sl22#8 with nearly 40 meters diameter covered the main area.

In the shadow of the 266-meter tall Colonius, two skyliner, an sl16, and the so-called sl22#8 with nearly 40 meters diameter covered the main area. Within a timeslot of only twelve hours, the skyliner team installed two skyliner close to the tallest building in Cologne. Local heroes De Höhner performed as part of the Digital X supporting program, while ex-governor of California, actor and bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger stopped by for a short visit.

In the run-up to the event, the entire area was elaborately modeled in a 3D process to determine the exact positions for the two skyliners with centimeter precision – maintaining the tight distance of just five to ten centimeters to existing structures. 

In charge of the implementation was the DoIt agency Düsseldorf, and Lohmar based DEKO-Service.
