Fairmount tows another Diamond Offshore rig to BrazilProjects and Operations // July 30, 2010
Fairmount Marine has towed another rig belonging to Diamond Offshore to Brazil.
The first rig it towed to Brazil was Ocean Courage; followed by Ocean Valor; and now by Ocean Baroness, which arrived safely in Brazil, towed by Fairmount Glacier and Fairmount Expedition, earlier in July.
The tow commenced offshore Fourchon in mid-May and was expected to last for at least 64 days. However, the Fairmount class tugs towed her with a very impressive speed, resulting in a transit time of only 50 days incluidng one bunker stop.
