Time has passed and websites come and go, and now I receive fewer photos from people in the business than I used to on the old site, but fortunately I've got a few years of unpublished images in stock, and here is one, the Thialf, the largest heavy lift vessel in the Heerema fleet. With the two cranes in tandem it can lift 14,200 tonnes. If you have not been close to any of these things you cannot appreciate the dimensions. They are enormous. I once carried a set of slings on a ship I commanded. They completely filled the deck.
