BOURBON success story continues with 54th and last Bourbon Liberty 200 vessel and the very 1st Bourbon Liberty 300 vessel

BOURBON announces the extension of its flagship series Bourbon Liberty in line with its strategy to offer a very high standard of service for the most demanding clients.
A naming ceremony was held today at Sinopacific Zhejiang shipyards in China for two iconic BOURBON vessels: Bourbon Liberty 254, last vessel to be delivered of the Bourbon Liberty 200 series of 54 AHTS, and Bourbon Liberty 301, first vessel of the Bourbon Liberty 300 series of 20 AHTS.
In June 2010, the group announced its "BOURBON 2015 Leadership Strategy" and ordered 3 new series of vessels from Sinopacific shipyards. Bourbon Liberty 301 is the first vessel of the first series to be delivered.
"Delivery of the Bourbon Liberty 301 is an important milestone for BOURBON," says Christian Lefèvre, CEO of BOURBON, during the vessel-naming ceremony. "Our strategy of building standardized vessels in large quantities, as exemplified in the Bourbon Liberty 100 and 200 series, has been a tremendous success and a key factor in helping BOURBON reach a position of global leader in the offshore marine services industry. With this extension of series, BOURBON demonstrates the efficiency and flexibility of this strategy to meet the needs and expectations of the most demanding oil and gas clients".
The first Bourbon Liberty, Bourbon Liberty 101, was delivered to the Group in February 2008. Four years later, all 76 Bourbon Liberty vessels (54 Bourbon Liberty 200 and 22 Bourbon Liberty 100) are operational and provide clients with numerous advantages:
- low fuel consumption thanks to diesel-electric propulsion
- greater reliability as a result of new design and equipment redundancy (multiple thrusters and 3 main generators)
- maneuverability with 5 thrusters
- greater cargo capacity since the main generators were moved to the main deck level.

"We operate a fleet of 76 Bourbon Liberty vessels worldwide," says Rodolphe Bouchet, VP Business

Management for Marine Services. "The concept and design of the series is appreciated and recognized by

our clients, as evidenced by their loyalty. We continue to respond to their needs and remain closely connected to the evolving needs of the offshore industry. The "BOURBON 2015 Leadership Strategy
