A purpose built structure, similar in appearance to a North Sea oil rig, the legs of the REM Island were sunk through a 60' depth of water into the sea-
The main platform containing the living accommodation and studios was 40' above sea level, with the huge transmitter mast towering over 360' above sea level. The whole 'Island' measured about 40' x 80' with a helipad situated on top of the accommodation building so that supplies and programme tapes could be brought out to the station even during rough sea conditions.
Located in international waters off Noordwijk, The Netherlands
