Taqa resumes production from Harding platform
Taqa has resumed production from its Harding platform in the North Sea, following the last week’s incident in which one worker died.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Taqa said: “TAQA can confirm that production has now been restarted at the TAQA-operated Harding platform, located 320 kilometres north-east of Aberdeen in the UK North Sea. The platform is being up-manned for routine operations.”
To remind, last Thursday, just after 2.15am, a Taqa worker, identified by Police Scotland as George Bartlett, 62, fell overboard during maintenance activity on the platform. He was recovered from the sea by a support vessel and flown by helicopter to a hospital in Shetland where he subsequently died.
