Mighty Ships: Neptune

Neptune is a ship out of water...fifty feet out of water. Custom-built to raise herself high off the ocean surface, this jack-up vessel has only one job to do: assemble wind turbines in rough seas. Join this brand-new ship off the Belgian Coast, where she will transport and install 30 massive turbines. It's a job that will take everything this mighty ship has to offer, because what makes this location the perfect place to operate a wind farm also makes it the worst place for a ship to build one.
