Countdown to Collision: Mega Port Rotterdam

This film follows a crack team of port workers as they turn around one of the world’s largest container ships, the Cosco Glory, in just 35 hours. Stunning CGI animation explores how seven key engineering inventions prevent this colossal operation from hitting the rocks. The pilot taps into a hi-tech ship-tracking system to avoid a collision with a tanker in the narrow entrance channel, a tugboat captain wrestles the Glory into dock with a revolutionary three-propeller design of tugboat, robotic cranes and trucks use hi-tech guidance systems to shift 60,000 tons of cargo and the port’s fire brigade set fire to a container to test a high-power water jet that can pierce metal walls to dowse the flames. But will these modern devices do what’s needed to get the Cosco Glory back to sea and avert a COUNTDOWN TO COLLISION.
