A service will be held today for the 16 men who died in a helicopter crash off Peterhead in 2009.
Reverend Gordon Craig, chaplain to the oil and gas industry, will be leading the service at the memorial garden for the crash in Johnstone Gardens, Aberdeen, at noon.
Around 150 friends and family are expected, and a a two-minute silence will be observed after a piper’s lament.
Rev Craig said: “For many of the families 10 years is just another anniversary in an ongoing day-to-day situation – their loss can feel as raw as it did that day.
“Their worlds changed forever in 2009 on that terrible day and they are continually coping with the loss.
“As time passes they may find ways to cope with that loss – but at the heart of the matter is that they wake up to this reality every day of their lives.
“The old adage that time is a great healer can feel wrong sometimes. I think time just helps us cope.
“To provide a space for them to remember that in a tranquil space is important and ultimately it is good to remember – you don’t want to forget.
“But to stand and remember in this busy world with other people who also went through a similar loss and also want to remember is very supportive.”
Wreaths will be placed by Lord Provost of Aberdeen Barnet Crockett, Deputy Provost of Aberdeenshire Ron McKail, and Oil and Gas UK chief executive Deirdre Michie.
Last night Mrs Michie said: “As we mark the 10th anniversary of the tragic Super Puma helicopter crash in the North Sea, our thoughts remain with the families, friends and colleagues who lost loved ones that day and we will never forget them.”
A private ceremony will also be held later today for the families involved.
The death of David Stephenson will also be remembered.
Mr Stephenson, 44, was crushed to death on board the Wellservicer about three miles from Aberdeen Harbour on the same day as the helicopter disaster.
