Delays in engineering, fabrication and procurement at a Scottish construction yard have put back completion of a floating North Sea production vessel for at least three months.

UIE Scotland was due to hand over the Bleo Holm monohulled unit to offshore contractor Bluewater at the end of September. The date has now slipped to at least the end of December.

‘We still hope we will be able to finish it this year,’ said Henrik Struick, Bluewater’s business development co-ordinator.
