ROTTERDAM, the Netherlands – Saipem has contracted Fairstar Heavy Transport to provide floatover and installation services for a platform offshore Iraq.

Fairstar’s new 50,000 dwt semisubmersible vessel Finesse will transport the 8,000-metric ton (8,818-ton) CMMP platform from the fabrication yard in Karimun, Indonesia, to the Persian Gulf during the second half of 2013.
