The Adriatic LNG Terminal touched Italian soil for the first time recently when the concrete caisson, with a weight of 450,000 tonnes, was lowered onto the seabed in its final position.

Four Fairmount tugs assisted by the tugs Taurus and Normand Mjolnu manoeuvred the caisson into the right position whereafter it was lowered onto the seabed by ballasting.

The caisson was placed within 55cm of its intended target after the tow, from Algeciras to offshore Venice, a tow that was accomplished at an average speed of 4,25 knots.

Ottar Furų, Aker Marine Contractors' ALNG offshore installation manager, said: "'Without you guys, your crew and your vessels this would not have been possible. Please express my gratitude to all on board and all who have worked with us on the project until now".
