The turret buoy for Hurricane Energy's Lancaster development west of Shetland has left Lerwick harbour.
Lerwick Harbour will host a string of key players today as it sets out it plans to become a "decommissioning centre of excellence".
Energy services group, Global Energy, has today announced the successful removal of three thrusters from the Buchan Alpha rig, currently under decommission.
Lerwick Port Authority has published a video showing the Buchan Alpha platform being towed in the harbour.
Marine industry IT supplier Transas has installed a new vessel monitoring system (VMS) at Lerwick harbour at a cost of £450,000.
A “severe contraction” in offshore oil and gas activity lowered traffic and cargo handling levels at Lerwick harbour in 2015, bosses at the Shetland port have said. But Lerwick Port Authority (LPA) said the outcome was to be expected, given that the harbour had been “exceptionally busy” in 2013 and 2014. It also said a return to form for cruise ship arrivals and the completion of improvements to its facilities will partially offset the effects of the energy sector downturn in 2016.
