Hello MattyBoy, it depends on the weight, in this case the wheelhouse and the accommodation have been cut off and lifted ashore by a crane while it was in the water ...
Fornaes have a mega powerful winches after which they then pulls the hull up on the environmentally protected area.

Best Regards

Is this unique to a shipbreaker - that the entire vessel has been removed from the water? To start with, she's not even in a dock ! Most other vessels I've seen have been deconstructed whilst still in the water (Alang) or sitting in a land-based dry dock.
