Rig on Board

By noon the Seajacks Kraken had been carefully positioned over the semi-submerged Swan, and the tugs returned to base.

It now remains for the Swan to pump itself up to normal freeboard. Once the Swan's deck is above water, the job of securing the rig to the deck begins. Special brackets are secured to the ship's deck, and rig is locked in place for the transatlantic trip.
