The Tangier is welded together from a hundred and twenty nine giant steel blocks. Bending the steel to create one of these blocks, the tanker’s bow, is a particularly technical challenge. Once the yard’s sculptors have created the complex curves, the 500 ton bow block is lifted into place.
As the challenges increase for Peter’s tanker team, Erik’s rig team is also feeling the pressure. The tight confines of the Invincible make the threat of fire and smoke a very real danger. Over 600 laborers and the yard’s rescue team must practice for every worker’s worst nightmare, a serious fire in the rig’s metal maze.
