World’s Biggest Ship Lift – From Russia!

The bigest ship lift in the world is on the Krasnoyarsk Dam, located on the Yenisey River in Russia. The Krasnoyarsk Dam is 124-metre high and supplies 6,000 MW of power. The dam is equipped with the electric rack railway to allow passage of ships. With 9,000 mm (29 ft 6 5⁄16 in), this is the widest gauge railway of any type in the world. It is working since 1982, and allows for ships to be literally physically relocated from one place to another in only 90 minutes.
