The Stahl would be able to travel 10km even after the engine is shut off. To bring it into the port, a total of 6 tugboats are required: one in the front and back and two on each side. There are sensors on the bottom of the carrier that indicate how much space is until the ocean bottom. The carrier comes awfully close to hitting bottom, but narrowly avoids so. After docking, 19 story tall cranes unload the ore. A tractor is dropped into the chambers to gather every last piece. It takes an entire week to remove all the ore.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
