The well-known Shukhov Tower in the Nizhny Novgorod Region has been suggested to be included in the UNESCO list of world heritage sites. “Shukhov Tower is a unique engineering object. 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.
