Before the eyes of numerous slonyers, the spectacular lifting of a huge find leaving has begun in Altentreptow at Neubrandenburg. After more than an hour's work with four hydraulic high performance presses, the approximately 400 tons of heavy natural monument moved slightly on Thursday just before noon. "He's floating," called Mayor Volker Bartl (Partilos) visibly facilitated. Three years ago he had pushed the project around the Giantenenenkoloss, who will attract visitors in the future.
The natural monument should be raised by almost three meters because the about eight meter long colossus with the dimensions of a detached house so far, only about half of its height rang out of the ground. Although there is a visitor magnet in the renovated park at the Klosterberg, because it is according to the estimation of experts in Germany's second largest Findling in the area of northern ice mates. The final height should be reached on Friday afternoon.
Volkswagen's share price rise: Spectacular, but difficult to explain
(Bloomberg) - Volkswagen AG shares continue their meteoric rise. Investors seem increasingly convinced that VW's challenge to Tesla Inc. with electric vehicles is likely to be successful. Many retail investors are buying. VW strains rose up to 14% on Thursday, while the more liquid preferred stocks rose as much as 9.3%. VW overtook SAP SE and is again Germany's most expensive stock corporation with a value of 150 billion euros in the meantime.
"One thing is only possible once in life," Helmut Glomb explained by the Berlin hydraulic company A & K stop means and hoists. The 58-year-old pushes the crucial levers for all four hydraulic presses, which press the special construction with stone millimeters upwards. Specialists like he have already lifted many bridges, but also worked on the glass façade at the Paul Löbe-Haus in Berlin, as he said.
If he is raised, the Findling should be measured, explained Karsten Sagittarius from the Geological State Office MV. Until the early Thursday afternoon, it succeeded in raising the "big stone" well a meter.
How complicated the whole thing is, showed on the side. Old concrete street plates were set up on a foundation. There are two heavy steel beams on them, on which the colossus hangs in two special parts. These concrete slabs have bent heavily through the pressure. "But that has set itself," says Glomb.
Most visitors could be infected by the joy of the mayor. This had triggered the first floating with construction manager Roland Thoma with sparkling wine. The glasses were then thrown against the granite trees.
"The stone is about two billion years old and came here with the Vistula Ice Age about 25,000 years ago from Sweden," said shooter. At that time, the giant-foundling was only a small stone compared to the ice sheeps who had heights of up to 3000 meters in Scandinavia. When the ice came back, the "big stone" remained in Altentreptow. In place, the "Little Markgremenstein" is so far from Berlin, whose weight is estimated at about 470 tonnes.
