1. The sarcophagus of a nuclear power plant.
The idea to close the ruined reactor mouth appeared almost immediately after the explosion. In order to build a sarcophagus over the Chernobyl nuclear power plant it took 7 thousand tons of metal structures and 400 thousand meters of cubic concrete mixture. And in order for the territory to be completely decontaminated, more than 90 thousand cubic meters of soil were removed.
