REM-platform to be turned into a restaurant and studio's

Postby berts » Fri Oct 22, 2010 7:40 am

I came across this little bit of information some time ago.


The REM-platform, from which in the sixties the commercial TV-Noordzee (on band III, channel 11) and Radio Noordzee broadcast their programmes off the Dutch coast near Scheveningen (The Hague) to the west of Holland, was scheduled to arrive at Amsterdam IJ-port this fall. As the restauration of the platform is not finished yet and the stormy season is on its way the move to Amsterdam has been postphoned to april 2011.

Developer "De Principaal" will turn the platform into a large restaurant which will be located in the IJ-port of Amsterdam.
The TV-Noordzee broadcasts from the REM-platform were very popular during the sixties. The Dutch government however wanted to get rid of the station as quickly as possible and, in 1964, passed the sao-called "Rem-law", making both the tv and the radio station illegal. Soon after that the platform was raded and broadcasts stopped.

Aside from a restaurant, if everything goes to plan, the REM-platform will also house radio-studio's and a school for dj's.

IJ-port /Houthavens is not too far from our house, so we'll definitely go there when all is finished.
It would be over 20 years before Holland got a taste of commercial tv in Dutch again, in the form of RTL-Veronique.

Radio studios an a school for DJ's, hmm, didn't someone once say something similar about the Mi Amigo when it was auctioned in 1972?

Just a thought! I am glad to hear that news as I thought that REM Island was to be scrapped.

Yes, I assumed it had been scrapped already. Let's see what happens , it wouldn't be the first good plan to die a quiet death.

Doesn't seem to have the same impact as when it was to be used for TV and Radio----now it's just a module on a barge.
