The History of the Supply Ship



The History of the Supply Ship catalogues the major strands in the development of the ship type over the 50 years of its existence. The author also provides the background to an industry that requires technical innovation and bravery on the part of those who invest in new ships, and extraordinary levels of seamanship on the parts of those who sail in them.


The eleven chapters cover the chronology of events and aspects of the work, including supplying platforms and moving mobile units, both using traditional methods, and also the more advanced techniques required in the deep waters of the North Atlantic, the Campos Basin and the Gulf of Mexico.
