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.

  • The book is directed towards merchant navy officers and all those charged with the management not only of their vessels but also of the well-being of their cargoes which they carry.
  • Supports a range of sectors; salvage operations, offshore section, ship building and repair and cargo aspects.
  • It covers a variety of heavy lift operations which are now a common feature of the marine industry today.
