Bucket wheel excavator

Pietrafitta lignite mine, Piegaro, Perugia Province, Umbria, Italy

Great bucket wheel excavator made by Orenstein & Koppel,a german ironwork manufactury.It's stopped on the abandoned coalfield of Pietrafitta,near Perugia.This machine was used to mining the lignite ore only during the first times of the mechanized excavation.The lignite mine was owned by Enel and fed a the near power plant.After this excavator was stopped beacause it became obsolete and it was used an other one similar but more modern.This model was built around 1960.It's almost 30 meters tall and 90 long,but it's not big like the sisters used in Germany or in U.S.A. made by Krupp.There are 200 meters long and almost 90 in tall.
