Description: Ardyne Point, oil platform construction at Ardyne Point, Strathclyde Region. The oil platform in its rural setting. Ardyne Point, the key site in the area, received its first contract to build a platform in January 1974, other orders soon followed and construction of the site began. 1974 found a remarkable outburst of interest by prospective platform constructors in the Firth of Clyde, attracted by the deep waters of the Clyde and the sea lochs and the proximity to a large potential labour force, and nearby supplies of steel and aggregates.
