The LNG worker, killed after the collapse of a jack up barge last Saturday, has been named as 44-year-old Adrianus Van Ham.

The Dutch national was working for a company sub-contracting to South Hook LNG and was one of eight people on the barge, a large floating maintenance platform, when it collapsed at 3pm.

Five other men were rescued from the barge and two from the water nearby. One man was taken to Withybush Hospital and has now been discharged.

"Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the next of kin, family and friends," said a spokesman for South Hook LNG. "We are supporting in every way possible the seven workers who were directly involved in this tragic event."

Workers at the site observed a two minute silence at 07.30 this morning (Monday) as a mark of respect. Following this the site was closed for all production work until tomorrow morning.

"Employees have been asked to use this time today to reflect on what has occurred and reconfirm all of our commitments to safety," said the spokesman.

The spokesman also expressed thanks for the professionalism and dedication of all the emergency services on behalf of South Hook LNG management and its contractors.
