Monster big crane

Monster crane

This monster big crane showed up on Sunday afternoon.

It was shepherded up the river on Willcarry 1500 by two tugs, making an appropriate amount of noise for such a big piece of kit.

I've no idea what the steelwork they hoisted onto the barge is intended for, but I bet that operation did not come cheap.

Interesting to watch though. I found myself thinking 'that must be a fun job'.
