More than 60 North Sea workers are to be flown to Aberdeen following a power generation issue on BP’s ETAP facility.
The alarm was raised late on Tuesday afternoon.
While 63 are to be flown out, approximately 71 personnel will remain on board the central processing facility.
A spokesperson for BP said there were no safety concerns and the move was being taken as a “precautionary measure”.
They said: “Following an issue with the power generation system on the ETAP platform, BP can confirm that – as a precautionary measure – we are preparing to remove non-essential personnel.
“Of the 134 people on board, 63 are expected to be flown to Aberdeen. The safety and wellbeing of our teams offshore is of the utmost priority.
“Production from the platform, located about 100 miles east of Aberdeen, has been temporarily suspended. We are working to resolve the power generation issue.”
