Indosiar Television Tower, The Tallest Tower in Indonesia
May 2, 2009 Leave a comment
It is currently the tallest structure in Indonesia and the 8th tallest building in the world. It consists of a 375 metre tall lattice structure with a side length of 6.3 m (20.7 ft), which carries on its top a 20 m (65.6 ft) high TV-broadcasting antena.
The upper parts of the mast are guyed to a 120 m (390 ft) triangular lattice steel structure with a side length of 56 m (183.7 ft), which was built around the mast. This special design, which gives the tower a unique shape, was chosen because of the lack of space available on the site. Broadcasting is run by the local television station, Indosiar.
