Fairmount Marine Wins Major Transport Contract from Rowan

Rowan and Louis Dreyfus Fairmount B.V. (managed by Fairmount Marine) signed a transportation contract for the mobilization of the Rowan jackups "Gilbert Rowe" and "Rowan Paris" from the Gulf of Mexico to the Middle East.

Superbarge Gavea Lifter, with 50,000 TDW the world's largest semisubmersible transportation barge, will be mobilized to the Gulf of Mexico immediately after completion of the current Sedco 709 dry docking operation in South Africa. Only Gavea Lifter is able to transport both rigs in one time, thus saving considerable costs and time for the owner.
