Japan Invented man made islands. And if you want to get technical... America pioneered building out land in New York City and Lower Manhattan.

Siemens to build trains for Sochi Olympics - RZhD
29 December 2009

MOSCOW, Dec 29 (Reuters) - German engineering giant Siemens will build suburban trains for the Russian resort city of Sochi, host of the 2014 Winter Olympics, the head of Russian state railway firm RZhD said on Tuesday.

Sochi needs to build most of the Olympic venues and infrastructure from scratch, and upgrading the city's transport system is crucial to the success of the games.

"We have just signed a contract with Siemens to construct trains for the Olympic railway," Vladimir Yakunin, head of RZhD, told Russian television news channel Vesti-24.

Russia has pledged to spend as much as $12 billion in private and public money on developing the Black Sea resort.

Siemens built Sapsan, Russia's first high-speed train between Moscow and St Petersburg, and won a 30-year, 630 million euro ($907 million) deal to supply and service eight of the trains.
