'Fairmount Expedition' delivers offshore support vessel (OSV) 'Harvey Rover' safely in the port of Paramaribo, Suriname after the OSV had engine problems in the South Atlantic.

Harvey Rover encountered engine problems while en route from South Africa to Trinidad.

Super-tug Fairmount Expedition was in Trinidad when her assistance was required by the owner of Harvey Rover, US-based Harvey Gulf International. When facing engine problems the 2010 build, 3.134 DWT, 75 meters long OSV was en route towards Trinidad and about 330 miles North-East of Brazilian port Ponta de Madeira.

Fairmount Expedition departed from Trinidad and met with Harvey Rover within four days. When hooked-up the convoy set sail for Trinidad but received orders to go to Paramaribo where Harvey Rover’s engine problems were to be resolved. Subsequently the disabled vessel  was delivered safely in Paramaribo just twelve days after the tug's assistance was required.
