Worker Injured on Technip’s North Sea Atlantic Vessel

Following media reports about the accident on board Technip-run multi-purpose construction vessel, the North Sea Atlantic, Technip has confirmed that one offshore worker has been injured.

Following treatment on board, the injured crewman was transferred to Gilbert Bain Hospital in Lerwick by helicopter for further treatment. He has now been transferred to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and is being supported by colleagues, Technip’s spokesperson wrote in an email.

An accident happened yesterday in the vicinity of BP’s Schiehallion field west of Shetland Islands.

According to the Technip’s spokesperson statement, worker’s condition is not life threatening.

The company also informed that no other personnel were involved in the incident.

The North Sea Atlantic vessel, capable of providing pipelay, subsea construction and survey services, joined Technip’s fleet in 2014 following a long term charter agreement with North Sea Shipping.
