Project Summary

The new jack-up drilling rig OFFSHORE COURAGEOUS was towed from its construction yard in Brownsville, TX, to the load-out location in Ingleside, TX. There the rig was towed to the submersed heavy-lift vessel WILLIFT FALCON for loading. For the offshore tow, 2 ocean going tugs were used. For the maneuvering through channels and loading, a large number of local harbor tugs were deployed. Detailed drawings were made for each phase of the tow, showing where each tug was to be positioned.
