Datacenter Ugchelen


Otterloseweg 110
7339 GZ


The broadcasting station of Ugchelen is a 142-meter-high construction made completely out of steel. These kinds of towers are called lattice towers. This tower was built in 1959 to transmit TV signals for the Dutch television from IJsselstein (Lopik) to Markelo and Zwolle-Kerspel for the television reception in the east and north of the Netherlands.

This tower was bought in 2007 by Cellnex to house a datacenter. The construction is also still fully in use as a radio mast.
