Here is the Allseas construction ship Oceanic in Ijmuiden the other day. At 129 metres long it may be the smallest of the Allies fleet, the largest being the "Pioneering Spirit", built to remove the topsides of offshore platforms complete. But back to the Oceanic which is a 2016 built construction ship with 22,000 bhp available, powering five thrusters, three aziprops at the stern and two azimuthing thrusters at the bow. It can accommodate 120 people and like all modern vessels of this type is DP2. The larger of its cranes has a 300 ton capacity.
