Over two thousand tons of highly sensitive and valuable cargo from Europe to Asia. That’s the challenge presented to the crew of the world’s largest heavy-lift vessel. The cargo, wind park components, including five gigantic nacelles, each as heavy as a Boeing 747, and nine 75-meter-long blades, are specially designed to fit together to make construction possible. Even a small delay could set back the project months.
To ensure that everything arrives at the destination safely, the crew builds another level altogether in the middle of the deck, resulting in a challenge that lasts for five straight weeks. It’s a race against time and against the weather. The loading process, which is never before undertaken anywhere in the world, is especially complicated, and the engineers have developed it specifically for this transport. No one has any experience with it, and the crew must trust the plans of the engineers. Success hinges on their precision, as a couple of centimeters too far to the left or right will mean everything out again.
Are you excited yet? We know we are! And we don’t even have to sail through the Pacific Ocean. This mega transport will take you on a journey on three levels: below deck, on deck, and above deck. And the best part, it’s all from the comfort of your home with the documentary.
Watch in awe as the Wind Park’s components make their epic journey across the Pacific. Witness the crew’s struggle as they make their way through the never-ending difficulties of transporting the over two thousand two hundred tons of cargo for five straight weeks. It’s project never before undertaken, and no one knows if the risky plan will prove successful in the end.
We highly recommend watching this fascinating documentary that features an incredible feat of human capability!
