Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): 2 128 metre tall hyperbolic towers used for two paralell 110kV-powerlines crossing Oka River near Dzerzhinsk.

These towers stood on the North side of Oka River. In 1989 the powerline was rerouted and one kept these towers, which were the second tallest structures Vladimir Shukhov designed as monument.

These towers belong to the best known towers Vladimir Shukhov designed.

Unfortunately in 2005 one of these towers was illegally scrapped by metal thefts ( not uncommon in Russia), so only one is left.

Notes: All 6 mentioned pylons belonged to 2 paralell running 110 kV powerlines and were Delta pylons for 1 circuit ( three conductors). In 1989 the powerlines, to which they belonged were dismantled, but the 128 metre towers were left as monuments. Unfortunately one of them was scrapped illegally in 2005.
