YASIN BEY

Posted:
Powership
 
Yasin Bey is built to sail anywhere and deliver badly-needed electricity. The ship’s first-ever voyage starts with Yasin Bey limping back to the shipyard - tilting to the side so much that it feels as if the ship will keel over. After some hectic, last-minute fixes, they sail to Indonesia, where a ragtag team of tugboats and barges rushes to anchor Yasin Bey offshore. Mammoth anchors plunge deep to the harbour floor. Massive chains snake rapidly off decks, threatening anyone in their path. And a team of riggers performs a high-wire act to plug the ship into the local electrical grid.
