The Port of London Authority (PLA) has unveiled a smart new eco-friendly £400,000 boat hoist to give its fleet – and other vessels on the Thames – a lift. The Power Hoist Atlantic (PHA) 100, made by Roodberg in the Netherlands, was recently brought into service at the PLA’s Marine Services boatyard in Denton, Kent. It can lift 70 tonnes – 10 more than the authority’s previous lift, which was in use for about 10 years.
