Fairmount delivers FPSO

May 12 - A specialised team lead by Fairmount Marine has completed successfully the tow, mooring and positioning hook-up of the floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO) Pazflor offshore Angola.

Earlier Fairmount's powerful tugs Fairmount ExpeditionFairmount Glacier and Fairmount Alpine towed FPSO Pazflor from Korea to Angola (pictured below).

After arrival offshore Angola, a 30 man team of Fairmount Marine connected the FPSO Pazflor to its moorings, while the three Fairmount tugs together with a fourth, chartered tug kept the Pazflor in position. The mooring and positioning hook-up works took less than three weeks and all went according to planned schedule.

The Fairmount Class tugs Fairmount Expedition, Fairmount Glacier and Fairmount Alpine have towed the FPSO Pazflor from Okpo in Korea over 11.000 miles to its destination offshore Angola. Fairmount Alpine, Fairmount Expedition and Fairmount Glacier have a combined bollard pull of over 600 tons. The long distance tow was done via Singapore and Cape of Good Hope.

FPSO Pazflor is one of the biggest of its kind, measuring 325 m in length, 61 m in width and having a towing draught of 8 m.
