    De Yue replaced by De Jin and Salvage Leader

    News // September 7, 2000
    Fairmount Marine says that following consultation with Camden Oil, Camden has decided to return the tug De Yue to its owners in China, and the vessel has joined the Global Towing Alliance (GTA).

    The De Yue was on a continuous charter from Fairmount for nearly three years, explained Fairmount Managing Director Henk van den Berg, during which time it had successfully undertaken many large scale projects worldwide.

    The De Yue was re-delivered in July, and all enquiries about her should now be directed to GTA in Rotterdam.

    All future work for De Yue will now be undertaken by the Modern tugs De Jin (which has a bollard pull of 150 tonnes), and the Salvage Leader (which has a bollard pull of 153 tonnes).

    Mr van den Berg says Salvage Leader has already successfully completed a number of jobs, including the successful tow of the Roger W Mowell, and she is currently in Singapore.

    All towage and salvage inquiries for these vessels should be directed to Fairmount Marine BV, Rotterdam, Guangzhou and Houston.
