Fairstar Heavy Transport N.V. (FAIR) announces today that its’ newbuild vessel FORTE  has completed sea-trials in China. The sea-trials finished with a successful submerging test.

The new build 50,000 DWT semi-submersible vessel began its sea trials off the coast of China on April 10, under the supervision of Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the vessel’s Classification Society. The FORTE will now return to the yard to prepare for its naming ceremony on May 23rd.

Ten days ago, just before the sea trial would begin, Willem Out, COO of Fairstar,  from the Bridge of the FORTE  said “In July, FORTE will be on contract for the next two years in the Gorgon LNG Project. She is scheduled to transport some of the biggest and most valuable modules from Korea to Barrow Island, Australia over the course of our time charter. The FORTE will be delivered on time and on budget.”

The FORTE’s sister ship FINESSE was launched from the dry-dock in Qidong on Thursday, April 5. FINESSE is scheduled for delivery to Fairstar in Late October 2012.
