Fairmount tugs deliver floating gas plant Toscana
Tugs Fairmount Summit and Fairmount Alpine have delivered the very first floating ‘gas plant’ in the world, the FSRU Toscana, safely offshore Livorno, Italy. The Toscana, an one of a kind unit, was towed from Dubai via Malta where final equipment was installed. After delivering the Toscana, both Fairmount tugs assisted in mooring the unit to her six pre-installed anchors.

The Toscana is a so called floating, storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) which is now moored 12 miles offshore Livorno and will be used as a terminal and export point for liquefied natural gas (lng). The unit is the converted 2004 build 288 meters long lng tanker Golar Frost. The conversion took place at Drydock World in Dubai for contractor Saipem and client OLT Offshore LNG Toscana SpA.

When fully operational the unit has a re-gasification capacity of 3.75 billion cubic meters a year (11 million cubic meters a day) and a storage capacity of 137,500 cubic meters of lng.

For the towage of FSRU Toscana Fairmount Marine mobilized tugs Fairmount Summit and Fairmount Alpine towards Dubai. After hooking-up the convoy set sail for Malta. In Malta the Toscana had a stopover for final outfittings. Later both tugs towed Toscana to her final location offshore Livorno and assisted in mooring the FSRU.

Saipem, Fairmount’s client, was very pleased with their performance. “The execution of the complex operations demonstrates sound engineering methodology, good preparations, strong teamwork and 110 percent commitment of all involved,’’ stated Saipem management.

Mr. Albert de Heer, CEO of Fairmount, is happy with the achievement of the entire team. "We are delighted to have been so closely involved in this truly unique assignment,’’ Mr. De Heer says. “Once again the Fairmount team demonstrated its supreme professionalism in successfully completing this complex, high value project. We hope it’s the first of many to come."
