Fairmount Marine said its tug, Fairmount Glacier, has safely delivered bulk carrier Cassiopeia Star in the port of Las Palmas, Canary Islands. The bulker was picked up during bad weather on the mid-Atlantic where she was drifting with main engine problems. Fairmount Marine, a marine contractor for ocean towage and heavy lift transportation, was contracted by Tsavliris Salvage to assist.

After steaming at full speed for 1,720 miles the Fairmount Glacier met with the still drifting Cassiopeia Star. The 173 meters long, 32,328 DWT bulk carrier Cassiopeia Star was bound for Mexico loaded with barite in ore lumps. The Fairmount Glacier towed the Cassiopeia Star safely from the mid-Atlantic to Las Palmas over a distance of 1,950 miles.
