Constructed in 2010, Fortuna is a multipurpose, flat-bottomed pipe lay barge with a pull capacity that allows installing both small diameter pipe in deep water and large trunk lines in shallow water areas.

Fortuna is hired out to Russian company MRTS, which uses it to lay a pipeline near the Russian island of Sakhalin, thus ultimately ensuring China’s oil and gas provision.
