Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): C1 pylons were used for the section between Ludwigsburg and Bad Neuenahr of the such called "Nord-Süd-Leitung",
the first 220kV-powerline in the world.
Nord-Süd-Leitung allowed an effective exchange of electrical power between the coal fired power stations at Northrhine-Westphalia and the hydroelectric power plants in Austria and Southern Black Forest.

This line, which was built by RWE AG was the germ cell of the European high voltage power grid.
Beside this C1-pylons are from unique design and were only used or
the section between Ludwigsburg and Bad Neuenahr of Nord-Süd-Leitung.
A model of a C1-pylon is shown in German Museum in Munich.

C1-pylons are designed for two three phase AC-circuits (6 conductors) with a maximum voltage of 380 kV, but used only for 220 kV-lines

Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): C2-pylons were used for the section between
Ludwigsburg-Herbertingen, Herbertingen-Bludenz (Austria) of Nord-Süd-Leitung, the branch
Herbertingen-Tiengen and the section Bad Neuenahr-Brauweiler of the such called "Nord-Süd-Leitung",
the first 220kV-powerline in the world.
C2-pylons were already designed for use in 380kV-lines. This was however not performed until 1964 when one
circuit of line between Ludwigsburg and Herbertingen and Herbertingen and Tiengen was rebuilt into a 380kV-
circuit.

As the C1-pylons the C2-pylons are from unique design. They were only used for
the upper mentioned lines.

C2-pylons are designed for two three phase AC-circuits (6 conductors) with a maximum voltage of 380 kV.
