VIDEO: See the development of the world’s biggest spar platform

Witness the development of the gigantic Statoil Aasta Hansteen, the world’s biggest spar platform weighing in at 46,000 tonnes.

See the platform then make its way to Stord from South Korea, loaded onto the world’s largest heavy-transport vessel.

Gasping at the sheer size of the structure, Norwegian minister for petroleum and energy, Terje Søviknes, described it as “world class engineering.”

In spring the structure will leave the fjord for its life at sea.
