Fairmount Alpine Provides Escort Service

Press Release
Wednesday, March 14, 2012

The tug Fairmount Alpine has performed escort services for a bulk carrier at the request of international salvage company Smit Salvage. The bulker suffered structural damages while in Brazil.
Smit contracted Fairmount Marine for first stand-by and, later, as escort during the trans-Atlantic crossing of the bulk carrier.
When contracted in December, Fairmount Marine mobilized super class tug Fairmount Alpine from Jamaica to Brazil. When arrived in Brazil, after a stop in Trinidad for supplies, the Fairmount Alpine was ordered to be stand-by for safety precaution. The Fairmount Alpine also assisted the salvage team with some cargo runs.
After almost two months, Fairmount Alpine was requested to escort the bulk carrier during her trans-Atlantic voyage from Brazil to Walvis Bay, Namibia. After arrival in Walvis Bay the Fairmount Alpine was released from her escort duties and mobilized to her next assignment.
The stand-by and escort services of Fairmount Alpine were the third salvage operation in a row for the Dutch flagged tug. Earlier the Fairmount Alpine assisted in the salvage of a drifted container vessel offshore the coast of Cuba, followed by assisting a salvage team in refloating a 30.000 DWT cargo vessel in the approach of Puerto Cortes, Honduras.
