This big pylon is also called a transmission tower. They are used to support an overhead power line. The total length of these big boys is between 15 and 55 metres. I recon this one is about 50 metres. A new type of pylon is being used in the Netherlands as of 2010. The pylons are designed in such a way that the reduction of magnetic field is as high as possible. Also the visual impact on the surrounding landscape was reduced.
