It took them only six months to build a new Krasnoyarsk TV tower in 2013, its height is 199,4 meters (including the lightning-rod). Such altitude allows to observe awesome views but being in the tower during its operation is rather dangerous, that is why they arrange scheduled preventive maintenance quarterly. One of them gave a chance to gelio, the blogger, to take these interesting pictures of the city.
The TV tower stands on the high bank of the Yenisei river, on the territory of the satellite center “Orbit”. It covers 49 inhabited localities (42% of the total population of the Krasnoyarsk region).
Tower’s illumination consists of twenty eight spotlights.
Construction higher than 40 meters over the ground was held by means of a mobile crane.
The tower was being erected by the crew consisting of seven members!
Total weight of the whole metal structure is equal to 350 tons, weight of the foundation – to 550 tons.

Railway bridge over the Yenisei and a highway bridge being built next to it.
Due to the high-rise buildings construction around the TV tower they are presently modernizing meter-wave transmitting – antennas – their vertical coverage is being narrowed to reduce the level of electromagnetic fields.
For such modernization partial disassembly of fasteners is required, new antenna sections are to be made and mounted.
The task is performed in several stages.
Old panels are being disassembled.
The panels are descended on the platform which is 140m over the ground.
The fastening system should be updated then.
Lifeline is required.
In general eleven antennas are installed on the tower.
