Scotland – 350 new jobs created for Shetland oil platform

THE Prime Minister has promised to support manufacturing as he congratulated a Fife firm which is taking on 350 workers after winning two massive contracts.

David Cameron visited Burntisland Fabrication (BiFab) just after bosses there announced new contracts worth £140 million involving the design, procurement and construction of major components for a new oil platform.

He told workers at the firm that, in the past, Britain’s economy was “too reliant on financial services and banking”.

Mr Cameron stressed the importance of “high-quality manufacturing” and said that the Government will “try and do our bit” to help manufacturing.

The new work at BiFab, for Premier Oil’s Solan development near Shetland, means the workforce will have doubled in size by December. It also allows the firm to continue the apprenticeship programme it began five years ago.

The contracts are expected to be completed by April 2014 and will involve BiFab’s sites in Methil and Burntisland in Fife and Arnish on Lewis…
