Yeah right ...


... Since more then 4 years this one in Australia has not moved from the "proposed" status, actually the only thing moving seams to be the proposed height: 900, 600, 1000 ...

The Namibia proposal seems a lot more serious. There's Germans involved there after all.

yes its a real shame. ive followed this since its begining.
back in early 2000's the proposal was 1km high 200mw. then was reduced to 500m/50mw tower. which was achievable. but still funding was biggest hurdle. $800mil to be exact.
i really do hope one day one of these giants get built.

Spain already had the first one! but only 200 metres tall or so and it fell down. And we have the heliostate towers in Sevilla (3 towers x 160 metres), anyone has seen this kind of tower outside Spain?

WTF is national economical money?

When Oil prices keep that high and interest rates will stay low they just borrow the money.
I am sure china is willing to lend them some money, if they use chinese workers and technology to built this mega-*****.

I'm beginning to think the whole point of this thing is to go around the world getting seed money to build these things in different locations but never actually produce anything.

hey guys I'm just happy there is a project in Australia cause the last major project Australia did was q1 back in 2004 and Australia has never built above 350m so not many buildings for me but with this it be great. they announced last week in my local newspaper they have plans for an observation deck in the top the pics the showed were awesome. they say you will faintly be able to see Sydney on the horizon through the most powerful telescopes on observation deck. awesome.
