Safe Scandinavia evancuated.

february 10 2008

One of the north sea offshore oil rigs, Safe Scandinavia, situated 250 km from Aberdeen is evacuated.

At the moment it's not clear why. There is a rumour about a bomb-alarm, but it isn't officialy confirmend.

The security alert was initiated by the rig itself.

The oil rig emplyed 539 people. They were evacuated with the help of 14 helicopters, and are now at nearby rigs.

Bomb disposal experts will be flown to the rig.


Update:

the bomb-alarm was a false alarm.
