''No technical glitch'' in Makkah Clock Tower



14 August 2011

Makkah - Fluorescent white and green lights filled the night sky near Central area of the Grand Mosque here after the company executing the Makkah Clock project began the final test run for the Clock.

Worshippers in the Haram were taken by surprise during taraweeh prayer on Friday night when lights in the clock suddently went off for severals minutes. Sources Okaz/Saudi Gazette that the cause was no a technical glitch but tests that are being conducted by a specialist technical team. The precision of the clock and the proper fonctioning of the electric leaps were being checked.

The company executing the project has completed installing the biggest gilded crescent in the world on top of the Makkah Clock. Light emanates from the crescent during Adhan through its 21,000 lamps, wich send shining white and green beams of light into night sky, wich can be seen from a distance of 30 km. the striking beams of lights can help people with special needs know the time for prayer despite being far away from the Haram.

Some days back the tallest gold minaret in the world - 208m high - was installed on top of the Makkah Clock.
The Makkah Clock Tower is the world's largest clock; it is 46m in diameter and 402m in height.

فحص 21 ألف مصباح ولا خلل في أداء ساعة مكة

طرزت أضواء فسفورية ذات ألوان بيضاء وخضراء سماء المنطقة المركزية المحيطة بالمسجد الحرام، بعد أن شرعت الشركة المنفذة لمشروع ساعة مكة في تنفيذ المرحلة التجريبية النهائية للساعة، والتي من المتوقع إطلاقها في ثوبها القشيب في الثلث الأخير من رمضان الجاري.

وفاجأت الساعة المصلين في صلاة التراويح البارحة الأولى في المسجد الحرام بإطفاء أضوائها لبضع دقائق، فيما أكدت مصادر لـ «عكاظ» أن ذلك لم يكن لخلل فني وإنما لتجارب يجريها فريق فني متخصص يشرف على رصد دقة عمل الساعة والمصابيح الكهربائية بها. وانتهت الشركة المنفذة من تركيب أكبر هلال مذهب في العالم، في قمة ساعة مكة المكرمة حيث تضيء أثناء الأذان بواسطة 21000 مصباح ضوئي، وتصدر هذه المصابيح أضواء لامعة باللونين الأبيض والأخضر، يمكن رؤيتها من مسافة تصل إلى 30 كيلو مترا من البرج، لتشير بذلك إلى وقت دخول الصلاة، وتمكن هذه الإشارات الضوئية ذوي الاحتياجات الخاصة كضعيفي السمع مثلا أو البعيدين من المسجد الحرام من معرفة وقت دخول الصلاة، وكان قبل أيام قد جرى تركيب أطول مئذنة ذهبية في العالم، والتي اعتلت ساعة مكة بطولها البالغ 208 أمتار.

وكانت ساعة مكة احتلت المركز الأول على الساعات العالمية بمجرد انطلاقها في بداية شهر رمضان الماضي ويبلغ قطر الساعة 46 مترا فيما يبلغ ارتفاعها 402 متر من ساحة الحرم ويمكن رؤيتها وسماع صوتها من مسافات بعيدة كما يعلو الساعة من الجهات الأربع «لفظ الجلالة».
