Fairmount Marine’s tug Fairmount Summit has towed heavy lift barge Acergy Polaris from Brazil to Gabon.

The Acergy Polaris, owned by Subsea 7, is a multipurpose barge for heavy lift activities in deepwater fields. The barge, equipped with pipelay tower, heavy lift crane and accommodation, has a length of 137 meters and is almost 40 meter wide.

The Fairmount Summit, which just had delivered the semi submersible drilling rig Delba III in Brazil, was mobilized towards a location offshore Rio de Janeiro. After a stop for replenishments, bunkers and a crew change, the Fairmount Summit hooked up Acergy Polaris.

Fairmount Summit and Acergy Polaris safely arrived in Port Gentil, Gabon, after a flawless trans-Atlantic crossing. After delivery of Acergy Polaris in Port Gentil, Fairmount Summit was released from its duties and ready for her next assignment.
