Fairmount Glacier Delivered Falcon 100 to Pointe Noire

Super tug Fairmount Glacier has delivered rig Falcon 100 safely offshore Pointe Noire, Congo. The rig was towed from Rio de Janeiro via the South Atlantic Ocean over a distance of over 3,400 miles. For this job the Fairmount Glacier was mobilized from Trinidad. First the tug towed the Falcon 100 from her drilling location offshore Macae, Brazil, to offshore Rio de Janeiro. Then Fairmount Glacier assisted the rig in anchor handling activities. Also the Fairmount Glacier assisted in installing a new ‘bridle’ – the connection between rig and towing line. After arrival in Pointe Noire the Fairmount Glacier assisted in keeping the rig in position during the deployment of her anchors. Also the Fairmount Glacier took over equipment and other cargo from Falcon 100 which was discharged in the port of Pointe Noire.
