Big hitter makes a delivery

Ocean Patriot semi submersible rig aboard Dockwise Vanguard - the largest semi-submersible heavy-lift ship in the world, sitting off Largo Bay in the Firth of Forth.  It's just popped in to the Forth for a couple of days to drop off the 14,000 tonne Ocean Patriot drilling rig, a stroll in the park for a ship that can carry 110,000 tonnes!

An eye-catching sight appeared off Largo Bay at the end of last week - the world’s largest semi-submersible heavy-lift ship.

Forth Ports harbourmaster explained the handover was carried out in the Forth because of its deep water and sheltered location.
