It is one of the two remaining in Russia high-rise multisection constructions by engineer Shukhov, - chairman of Legislative Assembly of the Nizhniy Novgorod Region Evgenie Lebedev noted. Our national heritage ought to be preserved for future generations”.

It is the world’s only hyperboloid multisection support of a transmission line designed as a backup mesh cover. It is 128 meters high.
