Jumbo installs the world's largest underwater restaurant

On March the 2nd, Jumbo installed the world's largest underwater restaurant, located in Hurawalhi (Maldives). At The Maldives, Jumbo moored the transport vessel alongside a shallow coral reef where the acrylic and steel structure for the world’s biggest underwater restaurant was lowered onto pre-installed concrete piles at a depth of about 10 meters.

The restaurant will welcome its first guests in August this year. 

The Underwater restaurant
On 23rd July 2015, GAC Sweden AB awarded Jumbo a contract for the transportation and installation of the underwater restaurant. The restaurant consists of an acrylic dome on a steel structure, has a weight of 410 metric tons and is the second one of its kind. The assembly yard of this sensitive cargo was in New Zealand, where Jumbo picked it up earlier this year. The project preparation and execution resulted in the smallest possible impact on the sensitive environment.
