The Fairmount tugs towed the rig over about 13,000 miles. Before the departure off Limasol, Cyprus, both Fairmount the tugs performed anchor handling work for the rig. On request of its owners cargo and crew runs were done during a stop off Las Palmas and a bunker stop was made at Port Nqgura, South Africa. During parts of the voyage transit speeds up to 9 knots were reached.

The ENSCO 5006 is a semi submersible drilling rig, capable for drilling operations up to 7,600 meters. The 1999 built rig is owned by Scottish ENSCO Plc.

Rotterdam, the Netherlands based Fairmount Marine, was established in 1980. Over the last 30 years it has developed into a world class marine contractor for ocean towage and heavy lift transportation by (submersible) barge, parallel to activities in the field of sales & purchase, brokerage and other related services. In May 2007 Louis Dreyfus Armateurs SAS of Paris acquired the company and thus Fairmount became a subsidiary company of this leading French ship-owner whose business activities and knowledge span more than a century. Today Fairmount Marine is the world leader in the field of long distance towing of the largest and most valuable objects afloat, such as caissons, FPSOs and semi-submersible drilling rigs. In order to meet the highest quality standards imposed by its worldwide clientele Fairmount Marine operates five 205 tonnes bollard pull long distance towing vessels with anchor handling capabilities which were all built at Niigata Shipyard in Japan between 2005 and 2007.
