Gigantic Wind Park Relocation | Mega Transports | Free Documentary

  • Published on Nov 17, 2019
  • A wind park needs to get from Europe to Asia. Over two thousand tons of highly sensitive and valuable cargo. On one of the world’s largest heavy lift vessels.
    The team has only 37 days for loading in two ports and travelling once around half of the globe. To be able to transport the entire cargo, the crew even has to build another level altogether - in the middle of the deck.
    It’ll be an ongoing battle for five straight weeks. Against time. And against weather.
    The load: Five gigantic nacelles, each as heavy as a Boeing 747 and nine 75-meter-long blades. All these wind park components have been specially designed to fit together - and can only be replaced with a huge effort. Any damage to the cladding or the electronics could delay construction of the whole wind park project by months.
    The loading process is extremely complicate and has been developed especially for this transport! So no one has any experience with it. The crew has to trust the plans of the engineers. And they don’t have ANY margin of error. Just a couple centimeters too far to the left or right would mean: everything out again.
    A project never before undertaken - anywhere in the world. And no one knows if the risky plan will prove successful in the end.
    A mega transport in the superlative. Over two thousand two hundred tons of cargo on three levels. Below deck, on deck, and above deck.

    God. So dramatic. This can't move even a centimeter. Bullshit. I've loaded cargo like this before.

    The "Free Documentary" site is one of the very best and most interesting of all sites on You Tube. Extremely professional in narration, cinematography, sound, and story - watching each of these videos is time well spent.

      Quentin Piliero Day ago

      Chris Wilson iv been told it’s used when they are put up too Because of how heavy they are it takes so much energy to get the first turn in is a lot of times wind can’t do it but once it starts turning the wind can keep it turning and it will quickly generate back to the power of lost from initiating to start

    The usage of metric is an improvement over past North American "documentaries", but there is still massive room for improvement to get these to the level of proper European documentaries.
    Step 1: Stop with the dubbing.
    Step 2: Stop with the sound-effects and overly dramatic music.
    Step 3: Graphics are good, but should be used sparingly only where needed. Overly using it is garish.
    Step 4: It's supposed to be a documentary. Just do that. You're not making a Tom Clancy film. There is very little story here, so stop trying to desperately cram one in or find one where there isn't one.

    Annoyingly over-dramatized.
    Everything is 'CATASTROPHIC' and any delay will cost billions, nay, TRILLIONS!!!!
    That, plus 48 min of action scene music,
    Makes it impossible to watch most modern documentaries.

      Nah because the hypersensitive main rotor structure had to go into the hold of the ship!

      @Common Sense United States customary units. When I was growing up it was referred to as universal. We use metric as well. SAE tool sets are common. I think I have a few sets. We have a mixture of both. I personally think using cm and mm is easier for measurements in certain applications. Not when it comes to km vs miles IMO or Farenheit vs. Celcius.

      @Common Sense There no such thing as "Imperial" measurement in the US. I don't know where people get this idea from. Probably video games. IMPERIAL is a word used for things to do with Royalty, sounds European if anything.

    • Common Sense
      Common Sense 22 days ago

      Of course everything are calculated in the metric system!
      Its only 2 countries on earth that uses Imperial measurements still!
      USA, and the UK.
      But all trade, designs, measurements, are done in the metric system!
      Imperial measurements like in America and the UK is for Domestic audiences only!
      In USA they have tried a couple of times to change to the metric system but was met by opposition from its citizens! And caved in!
      People don’t like change even when its for the best for the country!

    I've long thought that safety inspectors, engineers and schedule planners should have a minimum 5 years of actual in field work experience before they can come up with their ideas.
    Safety needs to be realistic Engineers need to understand maintenance requirements and Planners seem to forget that the real world is much different than their paper one.

    • Joe D
      Joe D 23 days ago +1

      @Richard Fernandez , The Best thing they did was to call off the lift when the winds got bad. A schedule delay may
      cost in time.... But Look at the COST of an injured Human Being. Check the OSHA Internet upload of the Milwaukee Crane
      Incident, Try to tell a family their family member is injured or not coming home. Why because the schedule had to
      be met. Factor that against mere money. Think of the Fact that Medical Science still cannot repair a Human Being
      to 100% after an accident even with those Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars.

    • Richard Fernandez
      Richard Fernandez 23 days ago

      The receiving end of this shipment has millions and millions of dollars invested in workers, machinery and transportation to get these things on site and operational. It's not something that they just call you when it shows up and everything and everyone is in the right place. Day long delays can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
