Strainer, capable of carrying four 380 kV-circuits, built for the double-circuit 380 kV-Powerline Oberzier-Sechtem
In 1977 a covered public observation deck accessible by a staircase in the centre of the tower was installed at a height of 27 metres.
It was in all probability the only public observation deck ever installed on an electricity pylon.
In 2002, two 110 kV-circuits of the single-phase AC Powerline Cologne-Sindorf of the German railway company were installed on the so far unused lowest crossbar of the pylon
In 2010 the observation deck was removed after much vandalism occurred which even concerned parts important for the integrity of the pylon
The only remains of the observation deck are the concrete plate between its feet and a lattice structure in the shape of an inverted "v" in the body of the tower in height of the former observation deck
