Fairmount Alpine delivers rig Ocean Yorktown in Gulf

October 7 - Fairmount Marine's tug Fairmount Alpine has delivered the semi submergible drilling rig Ocean Yorktown safely in Brownsville, USA, after a 5,400 miles (8690.5 km) tow from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Fairmount Marine was contracted in July by Diamond Offshore, a leading deepwater drilling contractor headquartered in Houston and says it towed the Ocean Yorktown over the distance in just 34 days with a general average speed of 6.6 knots, including a two-day bunkerstop.

The tow of the Ocean Yorktown was the fifth operation for Diamond Offshore Drilling performed by Fairmount Marine. In 2010 Fairmount's super tugs were involved in four operations for Diamond Offshore. 

Fairmount Marine is a marine contractor for ocean towage and heavy lift transportation, headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Fairmount's fleet of tugs consists of five modern super tugs of 205 tonnes bollard pull each, especially designed for long distance towing.
