Boskalis buys Fairmount Marine

March 4, 2014

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) is to buy Fairmount Marine B.V. and Fairmount Ocean Towage Company B.V. (Fairmount) from the French group Louis Dreyfus Armateurs.

Fairmount is a global provider of long-distance ocean towage services operating five, 205-tonne bollard pull towing vessels with anchor handling capabilities. 

"The addition of these ocean going anchor handling tugs (AHTs) allows Boskalis to further expand its market position in both offshore energy and salvage," Boskalis says.

"The use of ocean going tugs for long distance wet towage is complementary to Boskalis' current dry heavy marine transport offering. With the Fairmount assets, Boskalis can offer clients the full spectrum of heavy marine transport solutions tailored for the type of cargo or specific requirements. The AHTs also have the potential of being deployed into offshore projects thereby expanding Boskalis' current transport and installation offering and can be used in salvage projects."
