Grandweld Shipyards has completed the delivery of Bourbon Gannet, the third Hybrid Seismic Support Vessel in a series of six for Bourbon Offshore. The vessel was handed over in a delivery ceremony held on Saturday November 23, 2013 at Grandweld facilities at Dubai Maritime City.

The 54-meter , 50 tons bollard pull vessel will be operated by CGG to assist in seismic operations such as chasing, towing, storage and transport of offshore supplies and crew. Bourbon Petrel and Bourbon Fulmar, sister vessels of Bourbon Gannet and previously delivered by Grandweld as part of the same newbuild contract with Bourbon, are fully operational and already in service and are operating in Europe.

Bourbon Gannet is equipped with a highly flexible hybrid propulsion system that allows operation under efficient propulsion configuration including diesel-mechanical, diesel-electric and hybrid mode resulting in significant fuel savings and reduction in CO2 and sulphur emissions.

Bourbon Gannet is fitted with two electric bow thrusters and two flap-type rudders to ensure highly responsive maneuverability. It also comes with a distance line winch, dip winch, moonpool, fuel hose storage reel, Yokohama fenders and workboat davit.

Jamal Abki, Grandweld General Manager, said, “The highly innovative features of these vessels will set high market standards for efficiency and operational excellence. The delivery of these vessels marks yet another fruitful collaboration between Grandweld and Bourbon.”
