Fairmount tugs deliver Skarv Idun

March 2 - Fairmount Marine's tugs, Fairmount Sherpa and Fairmount Summit, have delivered FPSO Skarv Idun to the port of Stord in Norway.

Fairmount Sherpa and Fairmount Summit have a combined bollard pull of over 200 tonnes and took just 92 days for the long distance tow of about 15,300 nautical miles from Samsung Heavy Industries' shipyard in Okpo, South Korea at average speed of 7 knots including stops, via Singapore and the Cape of Good Hope.

Skarv Idun is a large floating production storage and offloading unit and will be used by BP to exploit the oil and gas fields Skarv and Idun, located just below the Arctic circle in the northern Norwegian Sea.

The FPSO, which is 292 m long, 50.6 m wide, with a towing draught of 12.2 m and a deadweight of 128,000 tonnes, will stay in the port of Stord for final fitting out and last preparations before Fairmount positions and moors Skarv Idun off the Norwegian coast later this month. Production from the fields is foreseen for the third quarter of this year.
