6.081 meter a. s. - world height record for serial motor vehicles!


record_16_g.jpgEMS with its Wenoll-System WS 120 with INSPO2 Module is the official supplier of the world height record for serial motor vehicles which was set up in the year 2005 with a Volkswagen Touareg “Expedition”. The systems were proved to be absolutely reliable and effective oxygen systems – even in great heights. So the oxygen concentration in the blood of the world record holders increased after application of the Wenoll-System from under 70% to over 95%! - and that in a height of over 6.000 meters above sea level! Due to the extremely light-weight systems and the long-lasting treatment duration of over 10 hours the Wenoll-Systems were perfect attendants of this world record. None of the team members had problems or typical symptoms of the mountain illness, even nobody was trained specially for this event and no classic height adaptation was done.

The team around Rainer Zietlow and Ronald Bormann reached the world record height of 6.081 meters above sea level at 2 pm on 29. of January 2005 at the volcano Ojos del Salado at Chile.

For every reached meter, the team dedicated 50 Euro Cent to the SOS village for homeless children at Santiago de Chile. The children are happy to receive over 3,000 Euros.
