Check out the Albatross taking on three massive cranes at Cork Dockyard

The first of three massive cranes was loaded onto the Albatross this afternoon at the Cork Dockyard. Dan Linehan was on the scene to give us the lowdown on the action. 

The Dockyard, formerly Verolme, was used to assemble the cranes over recent months.

When all three cranes are loaded, the Albatross will move to the Ringaskiddy deepwater port, where the cranes will be bolted onto the ship. It will then begin its journey to Puerto Rica!
