Since the first edition was published, project cargoes of enormous size and weight are now common place as opposed to being a rarity, thus the need to produce a second issue of this invaluable book.
Written by David J. House, this edition has been updated to reflect the growth in heavy lifting operations and is designed to show not only some of the many routine lift operations aboard ships, but also the specialist movements of excessive loads.
* Supports a range of sectors; salvage operations, offshore section, ship building and repair and cargo aspects.
* The book covers a variety of heavy lift operations which are now a common feature of the marine industry today.
