Rig ENSCO 5006 Delivered to Singapore

Tugs Fairmount Summit and Fairmount Alpine have towed rig ENSCO 5006 safely from Cyprus to Singapore. The Fairmount twins towed the rig over about 13,000 miles. Before the departure off Limasol, Cyprus, both Fairmount tugs performed anchor handling work for the rig. On the request of its owners, cargo and crew runs were completed during a stop off at Las Palmas and a bunker stop was made at Port Nqgura, South Africa. During parts of the voyage transit speeds up to 9 knots were reached.
