Giant on the Forth

[ April 12, 2021   //   ]

Onlookers on the Forth Estuary were treated to a spectacular sight at the weekend when, in an operation spanning two days, the largest construction vessel in the world Allseas’ Pioneering Spirit – 382 metres long and 124 metres wide – transferred a topside drilling platform onto the 200 metre long barge, the Iron Lady. The barge with its giant load was then towed to the North Sea by Forth Ports’ tugs, the Craigleith, Inchkeith and Fidra.
