New accommodation ship now on the way to Lerwick

The new accommodation ship is finally on its way to Lerwick harbour and it is due to arrive at Victoria Pier East at 10 PM on Monday evening. The 139 metre, 12 thousand tonne, Ocean Atlantic left Portland harbour in Dorset yesterday afternoon and this morning it was passing through the narrow part of the English Channel. The Ocean Atlantic is expected to be at Victoria Pier East in Lerwick harbour for at least a couple of months to house additional workers needed to complete the Shetland Gas Plant this summer. The Ocean Atlantic is a sister ship of the 137 metre, 12 thousand tonne Ocean Endeavour that was previously an accommodation ship at Victoria Pier East.
