Fairmount Marine’s tug Fairmount Sherpa has delivered the rig Atwood Condor to Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The semi submersible rig was towed from Port Louis, Mauritius, over a distance of 8,100 nautical miles with an average speed of 8.5 knots.
 
Atwood Condor is a 2012-built dynamically positioned semi submersible drilling unit capable of operating in 3,050m of water and drilling depths up to 12,200m. The 118m rig has accommodation for up to 200 persons.

The rig is owned by Atwood Oceanics, headquartered in Houston, US.

Before crossing the Atlantic, Fairmount Sherpa and her tow made a planned four day stop-over at Walvis Bay, Namibia. During the stop-over Fairmount Sherpa performed several cargo and passengers runs between the rig and the port.
