Footage has been released showing a massive crane vessel leaving a Dutch port for a North Sea wind farm.
Saipem 7000, the second-largest vessel of its kind in the world, was stationed in Rotterdam.
The Spanish firm says it will be used to transport and install four transformer platforms for the Hornsea Project One wind farm development starting this month.
The massive vessel has a lifting capacity of 14,000 tonnes.
It’s just below the Thialf, the world’s largest, at 14,200 tonnes.
The video comes courtesy of Kees Torn on Youtube.
Hornsea One, off the coast of Yorkshire, is set to be the world’s largest winfarm.
Once operational in 2020, it is estimated to be able to generate power for over a million homes.
