BOURBON OFFSHORE NORWAY

What might be called the "non standby " vessels of the Havila fleet were bought by Groupe Bourbon in 2003? . They are operated by Bourbon Offshore, a subsidiary based in Norway. Havila was formerly known as Remoy Management. They purchased the Boa fleet in about 1998 at least part of which was made up of former Smit Lloyd  anchor handlers. These are being disposed of by the Bourbon management.

Groupe Bourbon operates some of its ships under the banner of Bourbon Offshore in Norway, which in turn owns Bourbon Ships AS. No distinction between any of these ships is made on this website.

The company has been the first to embrace the Xbow design from Ulstein Verft, and the Bourbon Orca emerged from the yard during the latter part of 2006, with further platform ships of this configuration following. In April 2007 their anchor-handler Bourbon Dolphin sank while anchor-handling west of Shetland at the Transocean Rather. This event is discussed in detail elsewhere on this site. Shortly afterwards another Bourbon vessel sank in West Africa.

Bourbon's latest production (In 2009) is the Bourbon Liberty series. They intend to build 52 anchor-handlers, the 200 class and 24 platform ships, the 100 class, according to the publicity delivering one every two weeks until some time in 2012.

The vessels described here are part of the total fleet and are listed on the Bourbon Offshore (Norway site). Bourbon have another page for the South American Fleet, and I have designated a third page as the Bourbon Offshore (International) fleet.

This fine vessel was added to the Havila fleet in the middle of 2001. At the time of the Bourbon take-over it became Bourbon Crown.

Comments This is is possibly the ship of the decade. As well as the very unusual bow shape - see "News and Views" for more. The area of the stern roller turns into a ramp. When the anchor is pulled up onto the ramp it is hydraulically levelled so that the anchor is magically on the deck.

The ship is also diesel electric, and obviously only part of the total power available can be deployed to the main propulsion which is described as "two azimuthing thrusters".
