Greetings from Pascagoula! Fairstar Loads Ice Maiden
Fairstar Heavy Transport reported that the Fairstar Team successfully loaded the Ice Maiden in Pascagoula, Mississippi on April 29. As you can see from the attached photograph the Ice Maiden is quite a big girl to take out on your first date. The loading operation was extremely tricky and a lot could have gone wrong. The fact that we were in a US Military harbour and under the watchful eye of the United States Coastguard added a special edge to the normal stress of this business. Our team executed without a hitch. The safety of personnel, cargo and our ship were managed without incident. The value of our experienced crew, both on ship and on shore, was evident throughout the operation.
The Fjord is now underway to Mobile, Alabama where it will pick up a number of steel accommodation blocks that will also be transported with the hull to Newcastle. Fjord is scheduled to depart the United States on May 5
