A year after taking delivery of its last Bourbon 200 vessel and first Bourbon Liberty 300 vessel, Bourbon has extended its range of services with the Bourbon Liberty 151, the first vessel in a series of 15 PSVs.

The first Bourbon Liberty 150 series vessel will operate for Maersk Oil and Qatar.

Bourbon has been investing in a range of next generation built-in-series vessels since 2008. By the end of 2014, the group will be able to provide clients with an unprecedented series of 111 standardized, efficient and innovative Bourbon Liberty vessels devoted to offshore activities.

Including the Bourbon Liberty 151, Bourbon now has 85 Bourbon Liberty vessels operating worldwide. The entire series of 54 Bourbon Liberty 200 AHTS vessels, the entire series of 22 Bourbon Liberty 100 PSVs, eight Bourbon Liberty 300 AHTS vessels (20 on order) and the first Bourbon Liberty 150 PSV (15 on order).

“Bourbon Liberty vessels operate in inter-tropical areas such as Asia, Mediterranean, the Middle East, brazil, Mexico and West Africa,” said Rodolphe Bouchet, Bourbon Vice President Business Management, Marine Services.

Bourbon Liberty 150 vessels are an extension of Bourbon Liberty 100 vessels suited for drilling operations and provide clients with additional facilities such as larger deck space (up to 400m²) and a larger cargo capacity for liquid mud and bulk. Bourbon asserts the bourbon Liberty series provides oil and gas clients (majors, contractors, natural oil companies, etc.) with high standards of quality and performance. They list its features:

-exceptional maneuverability and station keeping with five thrusters and class two Dynamic Positioning System
-greater reliability due to equipment redundancy (multiple thrusters and three main generators) with the support of Bourbon’s maintenance network
-large and flexible cargo capacity (30% more cargo capacity than traditional vessels)
-versatility for deep sea and shallow water operations
-low fuel consumption due to diesel-electric propulsion
