The Skylift 3000 submersible jack platform is currently working off the Margate coast and can be spotted in waters at the rear of the Winter Gardens.
The Skylift 3000 operates as a unique submersible ship lift that can load structures weighing up to 3,000 tonnes. The structure is floating and towable with a 60x28m platform which can be used as a barge and an offshore platform.
The vessel can be used in tandem with another platform for heavier decommissioning and salvage works.
It is built by Danish Shipyard company Ravenstein.
