FAIRMOUNT MARINE OCEAN TOWAGE SPECIALIST
Fairmount Marine was set up thirty years ago and has been acquired recently by LDA. Fairmount Marine proposes its know-how and well-recognised skills in the ocean towage business to operators of drilling platforms, barges and FPSOs (Floating Production Storage and Offloading). It also enables its clients to dock floating equipments (such as platforms, drillships,...) on its large semi-submersible barges.
Fairmount Marine offers five modern (all delivered since 2005) and powerful (205t bollard pull) tugs as well as four semi-submersible barges capable to lift up to 50,000t. The skills of Fairmount Marine teams, added to such a modern fleet allow to answer its clients’ most exacting needs. By leaning against a partner such as the Louis Dreyfus Armateurs Group, Fairmount Marine will further develop its activities and investments.

After accrued considerable know-how in the laying and protection of submarine cables, with acknowledged expertise both in the design of burial systems and in their operations out at sea, diversification into wind farm cables is therefore a logical step for Louis Dreyfus TravOcean.
