Fairmount Sherpa Tows Rig ODN Tay IV to Brazil

Fairmount Marine’s tug Fairmount Sherpa has towed the rig ODN Tay IV from Las Palmas towards al location offshore Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. For this job Fairmount Marine was contracted by Odebrecht Oil and Gas for the third time in a row.

ODN Tay IV is a semi submersible drilling rig for deep water operations owned by Odebrecht Oil & Gas, part of leading Brazilian multinational Odebrecht SA. The rig has undergone an upgrading at a shipyard at Las Palmas, Canary Islands. For her next assignment for Brazilian oil company Petrobras the ODN Tay IV had to be towed to Brazil.

Tug Fairmount Sherpa towed the ODN Tay IV over a distance of 3,800 miles from Las Palmas to a location offshore Rio de Janeiro. The towage took just 30 days by an average speed of 5.2 knots. Upon arrival Fairmount Sherpa was requested to stay connected to ODN Tay IV to perform heading control duties during the inward clearance of the rig and preparations prior departure to the field.

Fairmount Marine is a marine contractor for ocean towage and heavy lift transportation, headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Fairmount’s fleet of tugs consists of five modern super tugs of 205 tons bollard pull each, especially designed for long distance towing, and a multipurpose support vessel.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
