Fairmount Glacier Assists Rig Scarabeo 9

Friday, November 18, 2011
Fairmount Marine’s powerful tug Fairmount Glacier has successfully assisted the new build semi submergible drilling rig Scarbeo 9 sailing around Cape of Good Hope. For this operation Fairmount was contracted by Saipem Energies directly after the successful installation of the floating, production, storage and offloading unit Usan offshore Nigeria. Fairmount Glacier was contracted to sail towards a rendez-vous location offshore South Africa where she met with Scarabeo 9 and escorted her safely around the Cape of Good Hope. Despite the bad weather encountered during the route, the convoy proceeded at an average speed of 4.5 to 5.0 knots. The semi submergible drilling rig Scarabeo 9 has a length of 115m, is 80m wide and her depth – from keel to main deck - is 35m.
