Bourbon named Shipowner of the Year 2010 by Offshore Support Journal

BOURBON is named ‘Shipowner of the Year 2010’ by the Offshore Support Journal. The Group is publicly recognized by this award as “the company which above all companies has shown excellence in the operation of its ships” (*). The “Shipowner of the Year 2010” Award has been received by Christian Lefèvre, Chief Executive Officer of BOURBON, during the Annual Offshore Support Journal Conference, on 16 February 2011 in London.

“This award recognizes the commitment of BOURBON’s women and men in the running of daily operations” says Christian Lefèvre. “It was made possible by the Group’s capacity to deliver on the promises of its strategic plans. And, above all, by BOURBON’s first principle: satisfying and renewing the trust of our clients”.

This priority is expressed through safe operations, competences of the crews, availability of our fleet and cost optimization.

In 2010, BOURBON took delivery of 61 new vessels. Through the BOURBON 2015 Leadership Strategy plan, the company is investing $ 2 billion into innovative and cost efficient vessels for deepwater growth and shallow water substitution, raising its fleet from 408 vessels to 600 vessels in 2015.
