We see a number of awe-inspiring inventions every day. However, there are a lot of inventions that do not get the credit they deserve. One of them is the heavy-lift ship. It is a vessel designed to move very large loads that are impossible for other ships to move.
The heavy-lift ship works by flooding the deck and positioning itself underneath the object it needs to carry.
This is the USS Cole, which is a 505-foot long ship being carried when it needed repairs in 2000.
Look at how tiny the humans are in the picture to grasp the sheer size of the vehicle.
It can also haul more than a dozen transport ships at the same time.
Ever wondered how the oil rigs are transported to such remote locations?
Oil rigs are not the only things it can carry. Carrying sea-based radars is no big deal for these massive ships.
Drilling rigs need to be transported to oil rigs as well. Here is the ship carrying three of them lined up.
Looking at these makes you feel like if there is anything this supership cannot carry.
