October 22 - Fairmount Marine was contracted by Boskalis Offshore to play a part in the installation of the FPSO OSX3 in the Tubarao Martelo oilfield in offshore Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

As part of a five strong fleet, Fairmount's tugs, Fairmount Glacier and Fairmount Expedition, helped position the OSX3 during an operation to hook the FPSO up to its anchors.

The tugs were mobilised to Rio de Janeiro, from where they escorted the OSX3, which is 370 m long and 57 m wide, to the oilfield over a distance of about 160 km.
