Some of the engineering wonders of the XXI Century 1.

Construction of an offshore wind farm Construction of an offshore wind farm 20 km from the coast of Denmark, is Horns Rev, the largest offshore wind farm in the world. It has 80 towers that rise to 110 m. high and generate a total of 16 0 MW of energy production over the parks on land. The pictures below show the blades of each windmill, measuring 30m long, and hav e the design of an airplane wing Moving a pallet to the center of the rotor assembly Mounting a rotor Transfer from the rotor to its offshore location Mounting sections of the towers that support the rotor A view of Wind over Complex Some of the engineering wonders of the XXI Century 2. Highway impossible Arctic Highway Located in the remote Northwest Territories, the road between Tibbitt and Contwo yto, Canada, is considered the world's most dangerous route. He goes into the Ar ctic and covers more than 500 miles to reach the giant diamond mines in the nort h. Its danger lies in the fact that 85% of its route runs on frozen lakes, so th e ice can break at any time and swallow the trucks that travel through it. The route is only passable in the harshest winter months. Every year when the ic e becomes thick enough, the company's equipment Nuna Logistics, (huge snowplows ...) ... Open a path hundreds of feet wide, equivalent to an eight-lane highway, allo wing trucks carrying 70 tons to the mines. But despite the considerable technical, sometimes Nature has the last word ...

Is it a delusion of Jules Verne in dri nks? What is this, God ...? With nearly a mile long and 32 meters wide, the Bridge of Magdeburg (Germany) is one of those places that you have to look twice to convince yourself that reall y exists. Water is a bridge crossing the Elbe River and allows barge traffic between two o f the biggest channels in the country. More than 500 million euros and six years of work have allowed this unreal image. In other words: it is a water-filled bridge that crosses over a river and the bo ats moving. And besides, people. (Sorry: Is what?) That is, is like a street, but full of water, the sailing ships that do not want to walk along the river beneath, and walk on the other boats that do not want t o surf the street above. (That it means any property, spent millions and took six years. But I say, to tr affic lights, do not hit?) These engineering marvels of the twenty-first century are not, in short, that th e much-vaunted First World. Neither more nor less. For these payments, meanwhile, we need gas in winter, water in summer, sometimes gasoline, electric all year ...
