Fairmount Marine Adds to Orderbook

Following the news that Fairmount Heavy Transport's heavy lift vessel Fairmount Fjord, currently under conversion at Malta Shipyard, has been hit by a series of delays, and the consequential termination of the transport contract of jack-up rig ENSCO 100 from West Africa to Rotterdam, ENSCO has now awarded the towage contract for the rig to Fairmount Marine B.V.

Without delay, Fairmount Alpine, one of the Fairmount's 200 T bp Class tugs, was dispatched from her location in Cape Town for rendezvous with the rig in Port Gentil area. As soon as final preparations to the rig have been completed, the convoy will set sail for Rotterdam to arrive around early October.

Fairmount Marine has signed a contract with Transocean for the towage of semisub Sedco 702. Fairmount's newest tug AHT FAIRMOUNT EXPEDITION will tow the SEDCO 702 from Singapore to the BONGA Field offshore Nigeria with a departure in late September.
