Long Description:
I 1936 blev gasbeholderen opstillet ved det daværende Silkeborg Gasværk på Søvej, hvor byens nye rådhus ligger i dag. Efter gasværket lukkede i 1968 blev beholderen flyttet til sin nuværende placering. Flytningen fandt sted i 1972. Gasbeholderen blev bugseret over Langsøen til Kærsgårdsbroen, hvorfra den blev transporteret videre på blokvogn - holdt oppe af to kraner, som kørte foran og bagved. Hvis det skulle være foregået ad vejnettet hele vejen ville det have været nødvendigt at nedtage el-ledninger undervejs.



In 1936 the gas globe was erected at the former gasworks at Søvej where the new city hall is now located. The gasworks closed in 1968 and the globe had to be removed. The removal took place in 1972. The globe was moved over Langsøen lake to the Kjærgårdsbro bridge from where it was moved further on a flatbed truck supported by two cranes. If the route had been on the roads all the distance it would have been necessary to dismantle powerlines.
