Saudi Arabia never stops investing in technology and futuristic construction. Lately, we have heard that Saudi Arabia is proposed a floating city project called Pangeos. The name of the floating city comes from Pange, the ancient supercontinent. The designer of the tera yacht is Pierpaolo Lazzarini. The artist is known for his visionary and unique motor vehicle designs. Pangeos will be his latest fascinating project. According to the rumors, the designer promised that the tera yacht would be a new wonder of design and engineering. The floating city will sail from King Abdul Aziz Port (Saudi Arabia) to the whole world.
What does Pangeos have?
Pangeos is not just a yacht. It is a floating city. Yes, a city that will be 600 meters long and 650 meters wide. It is really huge. So, the turtle-shaped floating city will have a wide range of opportunities, such as malls, rooftop gardens, helicopter pads, resorts, and many others. So we guess that you will feel like you are in a real city.
Saudi Arabia floating city, Pangeos, will have advanced technology. For example, it will have high-temperature superconductor engines that will be fully electric. With these engines, the tera yacht will have a speed of 5 knots per hour. Moreover, the vessel harnesses the power of the waves to generate renewable energy. Solar panels will also help the vessel produce its own energy.
The designer of the project estimates the investment in Pangeos will cost $8 billion. In addition, it will take some eight years to construct such a huge floating city. During the construction of the vessel, the company will need a good team of workers and high-quality materials. When Pangeos is built completely, 60.000 people will be able to accommodate in the city. So, they will not build only a vessel but a real city.
