The flotel accommodation barge Bibby Stockholm has now settled into her new home for what could be up to a year in Lerwick Harbour.
The barge moored on the inside of the Morrison Dock in Lerwick has 213 rooms that will soon be occupied by workers building Total's new gas plant at Sullom Voe oil terminal.
Recently refurbished the barge boasts a gym, kitchen facilities, wi-fi, along with en-suite cabins, providing a home from home. Other flotels may also soon be making an appearance soon in Shetland waters, with the possibility of a barge in Scalloway Harbour, along with the capability of Lerwick Harbour to host a second barge should the need arise.
