Marine Heavy Lift and Rigging Operations
by House, David J.
2nd ed. Covers the topic of Heavy Lifts within the marine industry. The movement of bulk cargoes, both dry and liquid has expanded considerably alongside increased development in the third world. However, this expansion has not been limited to just bulk cargoes. Containerisation, roll on, roll off and designated project cargoes are all sectors which have seen increased activity in the field of heavy lifting practice. This work not only some of the many routine lift operations aboard ships, but also the specialist movements of excessive loads, in a highly competitive commercial market.
