Commemorative plaque

 

 

A commemorative plaque was installed on the royal coinage at Segovia on 5 October last to attest to the Fundación Juanelo Turriano's donation of three hydraulic wheels that are now in operation, driving a bellows, drop hammer and lathe in the standing exhibition at the former mint.

 

The plaque is dedicated to engineer Ignacio González Tascón (1947-2006), who spent most of his career studying the history of technology from his chair at the University of Granada, as well as within the Fundación Juanelo Turriano and the Centre for Historic Studies on Public Works and Urban Planning (Spanish initials, CEHOPU). The plaque was uncovered by his daughter, Beatriz González Presmanes.
