    Fairplay completes towage job

    News // September 7, 2001
    Hamburg-based Fairplay Towage completed an interesting towage job recently, on behalf of Kvaerner Warnow Werft in Rostock, towing the drilling rig Stena Don from Rostock-Warnemuende to Sandnes in Norway.

    Fairplay mobilised three of their tugs stationed at Rotterdam. The rig is the first drilling platform being built in Germany in the last 18 years.

    On 15 August, three sea going tugs, the Fairplay 22, Fairplay 23 and Fairplay 26 left Rotterdam and arrived in Rostock on 17 August having passed the Kiel Canal.

    The tow began on 18 August with the assistance of Fairplay's Rostock-based harbour tugs Fairplay II, Fairplay IV, and Fairplay XI.

    The Stena Don reached Sandnes was reached on 26 August, where she is being completed before going to work in water depths of 130-500m for her owner Stena Drilling, who are based in Aberdeen.
