World’s Tallest Electricity Pylon for Single Phase AC Powerline
Friday, 19th September 2008 by Alex Turnbull
Update: Apologies pylon fans, as Jonathan points out in the comments, we’ve mistakenly identified the wrong huge white and orange power pylons. The pylons in this post are in fact the Elbe Crossings 1 and 2, and the actual World’s Tallest Electricity Pylons for Single Phase AC Powerline are here instead.
This is, wait for it… the World’s Tallest Electricity Pylon for Single Phase AC Powerline – which forms part of the Bremen-Industriehafen Weser Powerline Crossing, Bremen, Germany.
There are actually four of these 111 m tall pylons, carrying two parallel sets of single phase AC powerline across the Elbe, and all four look to be painted a lovely stripe of white and International Orange (a colour often used to help people avoid flying planes into tall things).
Especially for dr.R. and cookie monster.
