Fantastic video. That hull segment looks far too heavy to be lifted on four cables like that. Also interesting to see it in cross-section – don’t get a chance like that very often.

Each section weighs about 140 tonnes so the cranes must be incredibly strong. I can’t wait to see how the next layer goes on!
