Dutch oil rig worker Adrianus Van Ham was killed in the collapse of the jack-up barge working alongside the jetty at the South Hook LNG gas terminal. He was working for Dutch contractor Jack-Up Barge which was subcontracted to Anglo-Belgian pairing Kier-Besix.
His body was recovered over 24 hours after the incident -after an extensive search by rescue crews.
The accident happened opposite a sprawling LNG terminal being built by Dutch firm Chicago Bridge & Iron.
Two cranes weighing a combined 280 tonnes and a temporary portakabin were on the barge as it tilted. Initial reports suggest the barge became -unstable during a jacking -operation.
Dyfed-Powys Police is leading the joint investigation with the Health & Safety Executive.
A police statement said: “Two tugs have secured the platform and it is now being taken to a location which has been deemed safe.”
