Fairmount SummitToday's SotD are the anchor-handling tug Fairmount Summit (IMO: 9315563, Port of Registry: Panama) and Fairmount Sherpa. These 75 metres long, 18 metres wide tugs have an engine capacity of 16,320 BHP which is delivered by a Wartsila W6L32 engine. This capacity give the vessels a 205 ton bollard pull. The vessels are equipped with a 825 KW bow thruster and a 736 KW stern thruster. The vessels were built in 2005 at Niigata, Japan and are owned by the Dutch company Fairmount Marine. The vessels' sister vessel is the Fairmount Alpine.

The Fairmount Summit and Sherpa will arrive this morning in Rotterdam from after delivering the FPSO Skarv Idun in the port of Stord, Norway. The two tugs needed just 92 days for the long distance tow of about 15,300 nautical miles from Samsung Heavy Industries’ shipyard in Okpo, South Korea. More info: Fairmount Marine.
