Installing Offshore Wind Turbine
Two minute time lapse video.
I presume so, yes. Here's a case from 10 years ago. In the first picture, you see them lifting cargo using the crane on a docked ship that did not have those 4 feet. 10 seconds later, it was capsized.Very cool, thanks for sharing.
Do they raise the ship like that to make it a steadier platform for the crane?
Look at the first 4 seconds of the video in the OP. Those yellow jack stands were in place before this ship arrived. We don't know from the video how or when they were placed.It does seem like if there were much wave action that would make the rig too unstable to drop the jack stands cleanly onto the seafloor.
