Fairmount Marine’s Tugs 'Hook-Up' FPSO OSX3

Fairmount Marine’s tugs Fairmount Glacier and Fairmount Expedition have assisted in the installation of FPSO OSX3 in the Tubarão Martelo oilfield offshore Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Both Fairmount tugs were part of a five unit strong fleet of tugs contracted to hook-up the OSX3 to her anchors.

Fairmount Marine was contracted by Boskalis Offshore for the offshore support for the positioning of OSX3 during the hook-up operation. Tugs Fairmount Glacier and Fairmount Expedition were mobilized to Rio de Janeiro from where they escorted the OSX3 to the Tubarão Martelo oilfield over a distance of about 100 miles.

The hook-up operation consisted of the installation of twelve anchor chains – a job that was well executed in quite a fast time.

OSX3 is a brand new floating, production and offloading unit, build in Singapore. The vessel is 370 meters long, 57 meters wide and has, when fully loaded, a draft of 31 meters. The total capacity of the OSX3 is up to 100,000 barrel of oil per day and a storage capacity of up to 1,300,000 barrels. The oil production start-up of OSX3 is estimated for the end of this year.
