ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands -- Fairstar Heavy Transport (FAIR) has completed the loading of two topside modules onto its heavy transport ship Fjord at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) in Okpo, South Korea, where the two modules have been constructed.

"Both modules with an approximate total weight of 11,000 metric tons (12,125 tons) were successfully skidded onto the deck of the Fjord directly from the quayside," says Dave Hangoor, operations manager for Fairstar.

"The coordination and teamwork between DSME, Fairstar and Heerema Marine Contractors resulted in a smooth and incident-free loading in less than five hours. The ship functioned perfectly as we managed the changing tidal cycle while taking the modules onboard".

TheFjord will sail from Korea directly to the Tombua Landana field in Angola being developed by Chevron.
