Design of Foundations, Piles, Load Analysis
Because the required clearance over the Suez Canal is 152 metres (166 yd), the overhead line has two 221 metres (242 yd) high pylons (one on either side of the crossing) and Considered on of the Tallest Towers World Wide, in spite of its small span width of 600 metres (660 yd). The pylons each have four crossarms: three for the conductors and one for catching the conductors in case of an insulator string failure.
