See Monster oil rig ON ITS WAY to Weston

See Monster – the decommissioned North Sea offshore platform that is set to become one of the UK’s largest public art installations – is due to arrive in Weston by sea this week.

It comes after weeks of rumours surrounding delays over the opening of the attraction, which was due to open for the summer season.

The transformation of the platform is a world-first that aims to inspire global conversations about the repurposing of large industrial structures and design-led solutions to sustainable futures.

And the 450-tonne platform will be transported on a flatbed barge as large as a football pitch to its new home at the Tropicana, an iconic seafront landmark, and lifted by crane over the seawall onto preconstructed legs. 

The entire construction will be 35m tall – 15m taller than the Angel of the North and just 11m shy of Nelson’s Column.
