E1 – A team of marine engineers attempts to move a 1,400-ton British-built submarine 700 miles across water and land in Canada. The epic journey sees HMCS Onondaga hauled across the stormy North Atlantic, through narrow locks and up a perilously steep railway to reach its final destination. Will the team complete the mission before the blizzards arrive?
E2 – A team race against time and tide to transport a fleet of mega-yachts worth over $160million from Genoa, Italy to Fort Lauderdale in Florida. The 20 bespoke yachts are too precious to sail across the Atlantic. So a Dutch team create a customized ‘submersible’ yacht transporter-ship to ferry the luxurious pleasure boats around the world.
The mission’s success lies in the hands of loading master Tieke Springer. She must load, balance and secure the yachts on the transporter ships flat deck precisely so they can survive the rough sea crossing. Halfway through the 8,000km voyage, the ship runs into a hurricane. Will the precious cargo survive this deadly encounter?
E3 – Heavy Hauler Jeremy Patterson faces the titanic task of hauling one of America’s largest and most famous steamships, the SS President, almost 100 miles across sea and land in St Louis. His original plan – to haul the 100metre longship on a bed of over 80 wheels by road – is thwarted when it proves impossible to pull the ship out of the Mississippi.
This leaves him with the enormous challenge of slicing and dicing the ship into pieces using blow-torches and cranes. Strong gusts and winter blizzards make the task increasingly hazardous. Once all the pieces make it to the town of St Elmo, Jeremy must re-assemble the giant jigsaw puzzle in the middle of the town and transform it into a hotel. Will all the pieces fit back together?
E4 – A team of engineers attempts to build and haul a massive, brand new Search & Rescue Hovercraft 5,000 miles from Southampton to Vancouver in Canada. The Vancouver branch of the Canadian Coastguard deals with hundreds of emergencies every year along the western coastline. They desperately need a new type of all-terrain vehicle to cope with ever-increasing call outs. Engineers in Southampton, England have the answer.
Griffon Hoverworks are at the forefront of Hovercraft design and have struck a million-dollar deal with the coastguard to supply them with one of their biggest ever – the AP1-88. Now all they need to do is get it there – which proves to be an epic endeavour. This film follows the team put the craft through a series of rigorous sea trials followed by a dangerous crossing of a turbulent English Channel to the Netherlands where it will be craned onto an ocean-going vessel for its 5000-mile sea voyage long. Will the craft arrive in time to start saving lives?
Super-size missions, risky routes, and the biggest cargo on the planet-imagine hauling a submarine over dry land, transporting a fleet of mega-yachts across the Atlantic, or relocating 20 ancient Egyptian temples…and now meet the heavy hauliers who tackle incredible odds to get the job done.
