Can line up "one person to eat" "one person to watch a movie" ... a spot on the list of loneliness levels, one person to see the steam pump station in the wilderness of the wilderness hahaha.
In the Netherlands, a quarter of the land is made from the sea. There is a saying that "God makes the sea, the Dutch artificial land", while the Dutch province of Friesland is the only one. The province's land is derived from the land reclamation, and the entire province is below sea level, and it will always be threatened by the inundation of the sea.
For hundreds of years, the Dutch have worked hard for generations in water control, learning and peaceful coexistence with the sea. The Woda Steam Pump Station is the most outstanding water conservancy in the steam era. Engineers use steam energy to drain excess water. Today's modern water pumping facilities and the dam protector of the Netherlands, the homeland security of the Netherlands, do not need steam to power, and the Voda steam pump is still operating, like a spirited old man. The
Woda steam pump was listed as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1998.

D.F. Wouda Steam Pumping Station, located in Lelmsland, Frysln, North Holland.
The words, after a major flood in 1894, the Dutch decided to drain the water in southwestern Frisian. As a result, the Dutch built the world's largest steam pump station, the Voda steam pump station. It is said that every time a steam pump station is started, 15 workers are required to operate, and the water stored in the giant tank in the factory is boiled for 6-8 hours, thereby generating a large amount of steam. Driven by steam, the displacement can reach 4,000 cubic meters per minute, which is beyond the reach of other powers in the old industrial era. The meaning is, quite awesome!
Therefore, the Voda steam pump station, which is now working properly, was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1998. This steam pump with more than 100 years of history is also the largest steam pump in the world that can work normally. This century-old building is also a very meaningful museum, receiving a large number of tourists every year. Maybe you don't know Dutch history, don't care about water conservancy projects, just come over and see this ancient and elegant building is also very worthwhile~
