Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) and Crown Prince and Princess arrived just before 14 at the center in Bergen for the relations of the victims of the helicopter accident at Turøy to meet with the relatives of the victims of that accident.
The three were welcomed by Statoil CEO Eldar Sætre and EVP Margareth Øvrum outside Scandic Bergen Airport Hotel, which serves as dependents center.
Crown Prince and Princess and the Prime Minister are expected to meet the press after the visit.
Sætre, who arrived a few hours earlier, said he was grateful for getting to meet the relatives of the victims.
– I’m here primarily to share their sorrow. I am here to listen to what they have to say, the questions they may have and as far as possible respond to them. I have assured them that we will offer all the assistance and help we can on, he said to the press.
Finding out what caused the incident, is crucial to the families affected, Sætre stressed.
– This has been very powerful. I’m just a human being and I get affected by all of this. So naturally this is hard, he says to the news agency NTB.
