Organigramme 072020 DCSA


Denis Creissel began his career in 1958 with Lora Totino to work on a duplication of the cable railway of the “Aiguille du midi”(Chamonix-France).  He launched his own engineering consulting company in 1961 : DCSA, for Denis Creissels SA. Creation of cable transport engineering and management profession.


Construction of Telescaphe in Marseille (France), a ropeway / submarine diving (lift) allowing to visit seabed.


Construction of the first “DMC” (double single cable), the “Pontillas” in Serre-Chevalier (France), with Pomagalski. The technology with 2 carrying-hauling ropes allows a better wind resistance and long ranges and no limit overflights.


Total renovation of the two sections of “Aiguille du Midi” (Chamonix-France) ropeway with 50% of hourly capacity increase.


Noël BLANDON hands over DCSA to Christophe TAMBOURIN and Christophe BOTTOLLIER executives in DCSA over 15 years.


Denis Creissel followed several projects of classic ski lifts as project manager. Such as SCIA chairlift, in Saint Pierre de Chartreuse and many others lifts in Vars (France).


Construction of “Cime Caron”, cable car in Val Thorens (“téléphérique”), highest lift at that time, with 2 cabins of 151 passengers each.


Construction of the first “DMC-Funitel” in Val Thorens (France), the “Peclet”. This technology, based on DMC technology allows an excellent resistance to cross wind thanks to a large gap of the carrying – hauling ropes.


Denis Creissels hands overs DCSA to his successor and transmits the company to Noel Blandon.

Construction of the first detachable grip chairlift with technology double loading system (DLS), “TSD6 des Cascades”, in Val Thorens (France).
