The Amazing Falkirk Wheel

4 years ago

I`m still impressed with the transportation of huge boat from one water level to another, which is much much higher. I love technology, in constant growing.
I found this amazing technology in Scotland, in a gigantic wheel that lifts boats. I don`t know if you know, but the Falkirk Wheel is an engineering landmark for Scotland.
This amazing gigantic wheel opened in 2002 and is connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal.
This stunning structure works in a way that the boat is first placed inside on one of the ring gears; then it rotates 180 degrees to lift up the boat.

What do you think of this Wheel?
Are you impressed?
