I saw this ship loading while on holiday recently. The ship's about 130 metres long and the cargo is wind turbines. You can see 6 of the twelve on deck and there's about the same number below. The immense size of these blades is on display when you think that they're each about 50m long and take up a huge amount of storage space. Clearly moving them around is quite a logistical challenge!
The ship is a "rotor ship" and the 4 towers on the corners evidently use the Magnus effect for propulsion. There's also 9 marine diesels with exhaust gas boilers driving a steam turbine connected to the rotors. There's quite a lot of extra information available online of course.
All very Eco ...
