M.V. Servant I and Ocean Rover Utilize Port Freeport

Tuesday, December 04, 2001
The dockwise vessel M.V. Mighty Servant I is currently docked and preparing its deck to load the oil rig MODU Ocean Rover. The M.V. Mighty Servant I, a semi-submersible heavy lift vessel, will shift to Port Freeport’s deep-berthing area and ballast down to a depth that will allow the rig to float onto the deck of the ship. The rig arrived on November 18th at 11:45 a.m. and moored next to the monopiles at the deep water berth. The vessel, MSI, was scheduled to shift into position on November 20, to load the rig. This process will take several hours and will be a very impressive sight. Executive Port Director, A.J. “Pete” Reixach Jr. said, “ Port Freeport dredged our deep berthing area to a depth of 70 ft. to allow this type of business. Port Freeport is a prime location to handle the big rig traffic. The Port is near Houston, the energy capital of the world, and it is less than three miles to the open Gulf of Mexico. The area also offers an experienced workforce.
