FAIRMOUNT MARINE BV

Fairmount Mariine have been in existence in a variety of guises since about 1980. The fleet has been updated during the early years of the new century, and now the owners consider themselves to be "the world leader in the field of long distance towing".

They also own semi-submersible barges, which are not detailed here. According to their website the company was acquired by Louis Dreyfus Armateurs of Paris in 2007, which is a French shipping company.

The fleet is fairly elusive, mostly trogging across the ocean wastes towing stuff, so so far only one has been captured by our eagle-eyed photographers.

Since the last update this company has been taken over by the Royal Boskalis Westminster Group, but it seems that the fleet still operates as an entity so the page remains. Also the fleet has been photographed extensively by Gaetano Spiteri who contributes images from Malta.

At the 2015 review it can be seen that there have been no changes to this company. Well done Fairmount I would say.
