This week the 100 year old lighthouse Rubjerg Knude Fyr was repositioned 70m from its original location.
Reason, the sea has slowly demanded the land, piece by piece, year by year. Now, or was time to either disassemble the lighthouse and reassemble it on the new place. Or try out a daring act; sliding it to the new location.
And so they did. A close cooperation between the local master builder, authorities, a crane company and many other was set up.
I dare not think of how many calculations have been made. Nobody knew if the project was possible, until it was carried out.
It was! Everything went well and here’s the result. And the cost of the was close to nothing; DKK 5 millions. Amazing!
