ROTTERDAM, the NetherlandsFairmount Marine’s tug Fairmount Glacier has towed Saipem’s semisubmersible vessel Castoro Sei to Rotterdam, where it will prepare for a pipelay program in the North Sea.

Fairmount Glacier mobilized from Las Palmas in the Canary Islands to hook up with the 28,000-dwt, 152-m (498-ft) long Castoro Sei in Genoa, Italy.

The convoy crossed the Mediterranean Sea to reach Gibraltar within six days. For the next part of the voyage, including the passage through the English Channel, Fairmount Glacier was assisted by the tug Salviceroy.

On arrival in Rotterdam, Castoro Sei was towed inside and safely moored.
