Maersk supply service completes tow of semi-submersible

Maersk Supply Service has successfully completed the tow of a semi-submersible from Las Palmas to North-Western Australia.

The tow was carried out by the newly-built Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessel Maersk Master of the Starfish series, whose energy efficient design minimised fuel costs during transit.

The first leg of the tow of the semi-submersible MODU rig was direct from Las Palmas to Cape Town.

Maersk Master and the rig then rounded the Cape of Good Hope for a final port call in Port Louis, Mauritius before crossing the Indian Ocean to join Quadrant Energy’s Phoenix South and Van Gogh drilling campaign off the coast of North-Western Australia.

The total journey was 10,230 nautical miles for a total of 87 towing days.
