Self-stabilising ship to keep oil rig workers on even keel

The world's first single hull, floating accommodation vessel that uses its own waves for stability is being prepared for launch in 2015. Designed by Norwegian company, Salt Ship Design for Hyundai Heavy Industries, the vessel will be the largest ship of its kind ever built, providing 800 oil rig workers with a stable, temporary home in rough seas.
