HEAVY LIFT INDUSTRY WAITING FOR THE PICK-UP

Details of the principal vessels of the world's specialised heavy-lift fleet are given in terms of year of construction, dimensions, tonnage, lifting capacity and equipment. Derrick systems are discussed in some detail, and recent arrangements are described. The use of ro-ro ships for handling heavy cargo is considered, as well as the competition from other nontraditional sources, all of which have served to increase the difficulties facing the heavy lift operator.
