Drilling Rig "EIRIK RAUDE" - 2017 Nov 22

On 20 November 2017, the semi-submersible drilling rig  "EIRIK RAUDE" (GT 36,898) whilst laid up at Platygiali terminal - Astakos Port, Greece, broke loose from her moorings due to very strong winds. The platform drifted from berth No.2 to berth No.6, causing damage to fenders and collided with boat "ALKYON" and pilot boat "PILOT I".

Tsavliris tug boats "HERMES" and "HERMES I" mobilised from Patras, Greece, and upon arrival provided stand by services. On 22 November the tugs connected and shifted the platform back to her berth No.2 thus completing the operation.
