Was Menschen verbindet

Was Menschen verbindet

The alpinist who reaches for the reep cord hardly thinks of the sailor who may reach for a reep at the same moment. Such ropes or trowels were once turned on so-called Reeperbahnen from hemp or flax ropes.

Anyone who stands on a motor ship in the North Sea and sees the wake foaming up hardly thinks that in the mountains for the purpose of electricity production, the water is swirled through: In contrast to the ship's propeller, a hydropower plant turbine is not driven by a motor, but by the water that shoots towards it from pressure pipes.
