    Vessel & ROV News // May 26, 2009

    Fairstar Heavy Transport  has announced that Fjell has successfully completed its maiden contract in Trapani, Sicily and received total revenues of US$1.32 million.
    Fjell was used to transport the 7,000 ton chemical tanker Marettimo M from the Cantiere Navale di Trapani (CNT) shipyard in Trapani, Sicily and launch it into a safe location in Trapani harboor.

    Working closely with Mammoet, Marettimo M was rolled on to Fjell using Mammoet self-propelled mobile trailers (SPMT). Once on board the deck of Fjell, vessel sailed to a nearby location and submerged to a depth sufficient to allow Marettimo M to float off Fjell and was then towed back to a quayside in Trapani.
