Biggest ship in the world

Thought I'd post this as it's a company I do a lot of work for, here they are doing their first platform topside removal. The Pioneering Spirit is the biggest self powered ship in the world (there is a bigger one from Shell which is an FPSO but it can't move without tugs) and is built to remove&install platform topsides and jackets. They've also got a bigger ship in the design phase at the moment :-O
anyway follow the link to the video, interesting stuff.

Amazing, I actually have been 'on' the Shell 'Prelude' FPSO you mentioned whilst in construction, nothing that big should float

Yeah it's amazing what ballast can do isn't it. I've been on the Pioneering Spirit a couple of times but just for a nosey, they don't have any ROV's onboard unfortunately.

Talking Offshore oddities

One of our kids was working the design of some of the miles of tubing in the Prelude.

Huge monster 'ship'!

BTW can you spot the offshore extreme bizarroid in there?

Is that one of the French built destined for the Russian Navy carriers behind the bike?

The front half was build here. The back of the ship, the hold, came from Sankt-Peterburg.

The ship builder managed to weld both parts of the ship correctly.
Front in front, back where it should.

Lucky, considering they had 3 in 4 possibilities, 75% chances to weld it wrong.

Previously named SeVastopol (Севастополь) then renamed Anouar El Sadate sold and gone to Egypt now!

The bizzaro´d is the THING in the very background.
