The Alwyn scores much needed points for having two industrial capacity cargo / personnel lifts installed. However during the times when they are needed the most (shutdowns for example), a certain engineer officially restricts there use to cargo only.
The mid-level management rule with an iron hand here. Time-management being their creed and silent tyranny their religion! Policing the bridge, policing the job and cracking the whip are the norm. They tend to be spoken badly of by the workforce, with recruitment of fresh manpower a feat in itself.
Platform Emergency Drills - Normally carried out weekly (usually on a Sunday).
Overview - Located in the Northern Frontier region of the North Sea this static platform is within sight of many other platforms including the Norwegian sector ones (weather permitting!).
The oil company Total is the owner and operator of this platform.
