A third and final build is commencing, not in Korea this time, but in Europe. In the middle of winter, a skilled team led by Knud Völlkopf is creating a might super tug with the power of 180 cars, nicknamed The Starfish. The construction of the vessel’s bow and stern begins at two shipyards in Poland, but it’s a bumpy start for Maersk’s new build.
Meanwhile in Korea, with the Invincible’s hull now complete, Erik and the crew start the task of installing a vast network of electrical cables – enough wire to stretch from London to Frankfurt. The team is also hard at work installing the drilling tower, or derrick, that will house the equipment needed to drill for oil beneath the ocean floor. On the Tangier build, Peter and his team face the challenge of shifting the 10,000 ton tanker onto a giant submersible dock, from where it will soon be launched into the water for the very first time.
