    Fairstar Fjell performs well during trials

    Vessel & ROV News // May 13, 2009

    Fairstar has announced that the semi-submersible heavy transport vessel Fjell has returned to port in Malta after successfully executing a series of tests and manoeuvres required by the DNV prior to achieving class approval.

    Willem Out, Managing Director Fleet, attended the voyage along with inspectors from DNV. “We are extremely satisfied with the performance of Fjell at sea. The ship is considerably faster than its sister ship Fjord. She is responsive, safe and a pleasure to operate. Everyone on board was impressed with the vessel. All of the hard work over the last few months by our team in Malta has paid off.”
     
    At the time of writing, Fjell was due to perform her submersion test and was then is expected to receive the necessary certifications from both DNV and the Dutch Flag State enabling its sail away from Malta.
