Offshore construction is an important aspect of the maritime industry. Without offshore construction, the oil and gas structures that are stationed offshore would not exist.
Offshore structures are built in different ways, depending on preference and need. Some structures are built onshore and then transported out to sea. Other structures are primarily built offshore. Both avenues present their own sets of challenges. Workers who are responsible for transporting these massive structures out to sea have a dangerous job to do in stabilizing the load and lifting it into place when they reach the site.
