In order to help the medical services overwhelmed by the fight against the virus, the Swiss Army company Hospital 2 has moved to the Camp.

The Camp is, of course, closed to our usual high-ranking guests according to the directives of the Federal Council and the Army has turned it into an entrenched camp as a rear base for its support to the Neuchâtel hospitals. The Hospital 2 Company based at the Camp is currently 130 men and women strong, including a guard detachment which provides security on the site night and day. The movement of civilians at the approaches to the Camp is limited.

Only individual visits by appointment to the Camp office are possible. The Camp's basic telephone line, 032 836 26 36, is available during office hours.

The Camp was lucky enough to host international women's unihockey teams for about ten days.

This is in connection with the World Cup, which takes place between 7 and 15 December 2019 in the Neuchâtel region.

A total of three teams have taken up residence at the Camp: the Latvian team, the Polish team and the American team ( in the picture). They are assisted in their organization by the Swiss team, which helped them book their stay and arrange transportation to the Maladière.

For the first time, they discovered the Neuchâtel region, and for some, Switzerland in general.

When they arrived at the Camp Foundation, the reactions were all similar: "Wow, what a view," exclaimed the players, under the spell of the landscape surrounding the Camp.

They quickly took up residence and tried, between two competitions, to rest in order to put all the chances on their side.

However, this will not be enough: after several days of intense competition, the American, then Latvian and Polish teams will be eliminated from the tournament. The Swiss team will face Finland in the final and will leave the competition with the silver medal around their neck. A fine victory for this competition "at home".

The experience was a great one for the international players, who will keep an unforgettable memory of the snow-covered Alps at the other end of the lake, with Vaumarcus Hill in the foreground.

A softener now equips the water supply to the buildings in the upper row: Zwingli, Peupliers, Main Building and Office.

The water supplied by the municipal network is of excellent quality, but very "hard", it contains a high level of limescale, which accumulates in the distribution pipes, taps, water heaters and kitchen infrastructures. In the latter case, routine maintenance and frequent repairs disrupt its proper functioning and are costly. Recently, the intermunicipal connection of water networks has further worsened the situation.

After a thorough study and many contacts, the Camp chose an innovative system for the removal of limestone: the injection of small quantities of CO2 into the network (the same carbon dioxide as that used for sparkling water), which liquefies the limestone and allows it to "flow" with the water without disturbance and even partially dissolve the limestone previously accumulated in the infrastructure. This system has been preferred to the other two classics in this field: demineralization with salt, which neutralizes all minerals, which is not recommended for drinking water, and the magnetic system, which breaks down limestone, which will thus tend to accumulate less, but does not remove it.

The installation of this water softener puts the Camp at the forefront of technology in this metter and will provide considerable comfort, both for our guests and especially for water drinkers, as well as for our cooks and our employees in charge of maintenance.
