Lübeck - multi-bucket excavator „Wels“
Germany
Inside the machine room. The multi-bucket excavator „Wels“ (German for catfish) "Catfish," was built in 1936 in the Lübecker Maschinenbau Gesellschaft. Overall length of 20 meters, width 4.80 meters, 1.20 meters draft. It’s operational area were the rivers Wakenitz and Trave. It’s seven-ton chain with 32 buckets, each with a capacity of 45 liters, is an acoustic experience when in motion. The chain is powered by the air-cooled 12-cylinder Deutz diesel engine with 230 horsepower. The „Wels“ has been overhauled in 2006 and has a valid certificate of floatability until September 2013. Nevertheless, it acts only as museum ship today.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
