The HVDC Volgograd-Donbass is a high voltage direct current line between the static inverter plants at Volzhskaya (situated near the hydro-electric power plant Volgograd) and Mikhailovskaya in the Donbass area, which went into service in 1964. It consists of a 475 kilometre long overhead line. The static inverters of the HVDC Volgograd-Donbass are equipped with mercury arc rectifiers for a voltage of 100 kV and a maximum current of 940 ampere, which were partly replaced at the beginning of the 90's by thyristors. The HVDC Volgograd-Donbass is a bipolar HVDC with an operating voltage of 400 kV. It can transfer a maximum power of 750 megawatts. ...more on Wikipedia about "HVDC Volgograd-Donbass"

The Pacific Intertie is a high voltage direct current transmission line between the Celilo Converter Station outside The Dalles, Oregon and the Sylmar Converter Station outside Los Angeles. Finished in 1970, the Pacific Intertie consists of a 1362 kilometer overhead transmission line. Originally only mercury arc rectifiers were used as static inverter valves. The valves were series connected in three six-pulse valve bridges for each pole. The blocking voltage of the valves was 133 kV with a maximum current of 1800 amperes, for a transmission rate of 1440 megawatts with a symmetrical voltage of 400 kV against earth. ...more on Wikipedia about "Pacific Intertie"

This powerline, carrying the number 1101, runs 268 miles (432 km) from Ekibastusz to Kokshetau in Kazakhstan. It is mounted on electrical pylons with an average height of 60 metres. The weight of the conductors is approximately 50 tons. ...more on Wikipedia about "Powerline Ekibastuz-Kokshetau"
The Pylons of the Ghesm Crossing are two 130 metre high pylons, carrying a 230kV- powerline over the Strait of Ghesm in Iran. One of these pylons was founded on a caisson in the strait. Both pylons have two crossbars with span widths of 36.20 metres and 13.8 metres for 6 conductors. The line span between the two pylons is 1585 metres. Unlike other 230kV-powerlines, no ground conductors are used. ...more on Wikipedia about "Pylons of Ghesm Crossing"
The pylons of the Pearl River Crossing are three electricity pylons with heights of 240 metres, 253 metres, and 80 metres. They carry the 500kV-three phase AC powerline between Jiangmen and Sha Jiao in Guangdong, China at the crossing of the Pearl River. The 253 metre high pylon was built on an artificial island in the Pearl River and is the highest pylon in the world. The 240 metre high pylon is situated at the east side of Pearl River, while the 80 metre high pylon stands on the west side of the river. The span width of the line between the 253 metre and the 240 metre high pylon is 1547 metres. At this span the line is at its deepest point in a height of 70 metres over the Pearl River. The span width of the two crossbars of the 240 and the 253 metre high pylons are 63.5 metres and 54.5 metres. The pylons at the Pearl River Crossing were built in 1987. ...more on Wikipedia about "Pylons of Pearl River Crossing"
