Mechanical Miracles of the 21st Century
1. Wind farm in the middle of the ocean
20 km from the coast of Denmark, you will find “Horns Rev”, the biggest wind farm in the world. 80 turbines 110 m tall, capable of 160 MW
The fins are 30 m long.
2. Fantasy road that exists part of the time.
The highway between Tibbitt and Contwoyto in Canada.
Most dangerous road in the world. It is over 500km long and consist of 85% frozen lakes. The ice can break at any time.
This road can only operate / come into effect during the coldest months of the year. When the ice becomes strong enough every year the road is made.
Here is a series of truck on the ice – each 70 τons.
Some people try and push their luck at the end of the season – but in the end nature has the final say.
3. Colossus of the sea.
Used for the heaviest, and biggest of things needing transport
Oil Rigs transported off-shore …
…Oil refinery
…a whole Military Radar…
1. It sinks under the water…
3. And then it raises itself!!
4. Modern ways to control water.
The bridge “Magdeburg” (Germany) – you need to look at it a number of times to understand what is actually happening.
It’s a bridge that goes over the Elba river. It allows boats easy access into canals. It cost more than 500 million Euros and took 6 years to build.
