Barge heads for new life

Malta Shipyards has commenced the $68m conversion of the Dutch-flagged transport barge Fairmount Fjell into a self-propelled semi-submersible heavylift vessel, writes Ralf Witthohn. The barge, which is operated by Rotterdam-based Fairmount Heavy Transport, will be fitted with two Azipod thrusters at the stern, one bow thruster, an accommodation module and a new navigation bridge. Work will also include the installation of generators and the re-arrangement of the barge’s tank system.
