Another support vessel involved with SOLITAIRE arrived today. She is BOA FORTUNE, which like CARRON was also built on the Clyde. Launched at Ferguson Shipbuilder's yard at Port Glasgow in 1992 as STAR PEGASUS, and has since carried the names STIRLING PEGASUS and HAVILA FORTUNE, taking her current name in 2006. She is operated by a Norwegian firm, Taubatkompaniet, and now flies the Singapore flag. 3,100 tonnes deadweight, she is 68.7 metres long, and is on charter to Allseas Ltd, owners of SOLITAIRE.
