The development of these 13 experimental wind turbines pioneered many of the wind turbine design technologies in use today, including: steel tube towers, variable-speed generators, composite blade materials, partial-span pitch control, as well as aerodynamic, structural, and acoustic engineering design capabilities. The modern wind power industry began in 1979 with the serial production of wind turbines by Danish manufacturers Kuriant, Vestas, Nordtank (NEG Micon), and Bonus (Siemens). These early turbines were small by today's standards, with capacities of 20–30 kW each. Since then, they have increased greatly in size, with the Enercon E-126 capable of delivering up to 7 MW, while wind turbine production has expanded to many countries. Administratively, Sevastopol is a municipality excluded from the surrounding Autonomous Republic of Crimea (see Administrative divisions of Ukraine for more details). The territory of the municipality is 863.5 km² Area 1079 km² including water and it is further subdivided into four raions (districts). Besides the City of Sevastopol proper, it also includes two towns — Balaklava, Inkerman, urban-type settlement Kacha, and 29 villages. The Sevastopol Municipality is divided into four municipal raions: Lenin Raion, Nakhimov Raion, Gagarin Raion, and Balaklava Raion. Lenin and Gagarin raions encompass the City of Sevastopol, while Nakhimov (north) and Balaklava (east) include the surrounding settlements. Balaklava, the southern portion of Sevastopol City, is part of the Balaklava Raion and is an urban massif of the City of Sevastopol. Out of other settlements, the municipality also contains 29 rural settlements including villages as well as two urban settlements: the Inkerman City and the town of Kacha. All of the settlements are organized within the municipal raions. Most of the Sevastopol City is located within Lenin and Gagarin raions, with Lenin being the central one and housing the administrations of city and municipality. The Chersonesus Taurica Preserve of Cultural Heritage with archaeological site and museum is located in the Gagarin Raion. * the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada. Helps. p. 109.

large attacking

started with a successful Russian attack on Ottoman positions. This led to the Russians breaking through into the valley of Balaklava (anglicised as "Balaclava"), where British forces were encamped. The Russian advance was intended to disrupt the British base and attack British positions near Sevastopol from the rear. An initial Russian advance south of the southern line of hills was repulsed by the British. A large attacking force of Russian cavalry advanced over the ridgeline, and split into two portions. One of these columns drove south towards the town of Balaklava itself, threatening the main supply of the entire British army. That drive was repulsed by the muskets of the 93rd (Highland) Regiment, which had been formed into a lone line of two rows by its commander, Sir Colin Campbell (Colin Campbell, 1st Baron Clyde). This action became known in history as "The Thin Red Line (The Thin Red Line (1854 battle))", this battle was also well known for the Charge of the Light Brigade.They were also invold in the Battle of Inkerman (November 5, 1854). Geography When the Republic of Genoa was established in the early 11th century, it consisted of the city of Genoa and the surrounding areas. As the commerce of the city increased, so did the territory of the Republic. In 1015, the entirety of Liguria was part of the Republic of Genoa. After the First Crusade in 1098, Genoa gained settlements in Syria. The majority of them were lost during the campaigns of Saladin. In 1261 the city of Izmir became Genoese territory. In 1255 Genoa established the colony (Genoese colonies) of Caffa (Feodosiya) in Crimea.
