BLEO HOLM

Post by Deepol » Mon Mar 06, 2017 7:34 am

BLEO HOLM was a Floating Storage Unit for Bluewater Marine for service in the North Sea oilfields. The hull was built in Japan and was towed to the Clyde in August 1997 for completion at the UIE Yard at Clydebank.
She was delivered in February 1999 and was the last vessel to be completed at the former John Brown site.
