I was watching the discovery channel Sunday night. They set the bases for the wind generators from a jack up crane barge, and then they set the substation on one of the bases but when it came time to install the masts and wind generators they could not use the ship as they planned on.  >>:-(  They said that the ship was not stable enough to assemble the wind generators due to the fact that they could not get the hull completely out of the water and the waves caused the whole  ship to move while they were trying to lift the parts in place so they went back to the jack up crane barge.
