Fairmount Sherpa Delivers Rig in Egypt

Tuesday, December 20, 2011
Fairmount Marine’s tug Fairmount Sherpa has towed the semi-submersible drilling rig Noble Paul Romano from the Gulf of Mexico to Egypt. The tow was over a distance of close to 8,000 miles. When contracted by Noble Drilling the Fairmount Sherpa just has completed the installation of FPSO Skarv, offshore Norway. Fairmount Sherpa was mobilized first to Rotterdam for supplies and bunkers before it sailed to Jamaica for a rendez-vous with Noble Paul Romano, which was all ready under tow by tug Svitzer Rotterdam. Offshore Jamaica Fairmount Sherpa hooked up the tow and the convoy set sail for San Juan, Puerto Rico, for bunkers. After the successful crossing of the North Atlantic the convoy safely arrived at Las Palmas, Canary Islands, for a next bunker stop. Here Fairmount Sherpa assisted in cargo and personnel transfer for the Noble Paul Romano as well.
