Contest # 372 Answer: Meyer Wrift Shipyards, Papenberg, Germany
Meyer Wrift is a manufacturer of ships, including some of the largest cruise ships. The factory is 26 miles from the sea along the river Ems, and the size of the ships makes their initial journey of the seas (referred to as “Conveyence”), well, interesting to say the least. At certain points in the journey, the ship has a clearance of less than 2 feet on either side.
Meyer Wrift published a youtube video with highlights of the conveyance of Celebrity’s Quantum of the Seas last September.
