brent_charlie_STOR.jpgShell Expro had to evacuate 79 workers from its Brent Charlie platform in the North Sea yesterday evening following a series of generator failures.

The company emphasised that there were no safety problems and that non-essential workers had been moved as a precautionary measure and for reasons of "comfort", Evening Express reports.

The workers were moved to the nearby Brent Bravo, Brent Alpha and Brent Delta platforms by two Bristow Tiger helicopters dispatched from Sumburgh at around 6 p.m. The operation lasted until around 9 p.m.

The incident came less than three weeks after two oil workers were killed in a neighbouring platform when they were overcome by gas.
