World's Biggest Shipbuilders

In a dockyard the size of a large airfield Discovery Channel’s new series, WORLD’S BIGGEST SHIPBUILDERS, follows an army of engineers building a ship like no other. Longer than four football pitches and capable of carrying more than 18,000 containers, it's the world's largest ocean going cargo vessel – the Triple-E. The record-breaking ship, which is 40% larger than existing cargo ships, will transport everything from cars to trainers between the world's busiest port in Hong Kong, to the largest port in Rotterdam.  The new series charts the epic battle to build this super ship through the eyes of the team, and through the use of stunning 3D CGI animations.
