Assembly of New Giant Crane Begins at STX France

Assembly of a giant new crane has begun at the STX France yard in Saint-Nazaire. The new crane, referred to as TGP, will have almost twice the lifting capacity of the one it is replacing. Its first use will be in the construction of Royal Caribbean's third Oasis-class ship which will be built at the yard for delivery in the spring of 2016.
