World’s largest vessel
On Thursday 8th of January the world's largest vessel arrived at the port of Rotterdam. With a length of 382 meters and a width of 124 meters, which equals about 8 soccer fields, 'Pioneering Spirit' is the world's largest vessel.
With a lift capacity of 48,000 tons, it can lift and transport entire oil- and gas platforms.
Dismantling into components is no longer required which saves enormous amounts of time.
For the coming four months the vessel will be stationed in Rotterdam to be further assembled. Hundreds of workers will be necessary to complete the assembly.
The arrival of the largest vessel of the world proves that Rotterdam is once again ready for the future.
