Support of offshore installations, emergency responses, crew transport... the BOURBON FSIVs assist our clients with a wide range of services.

Our FSIVs - Fast Support Intervention Vessels - are primarily intended for urgent resupply and the transport of response teams. They offer:

  • high speed to respond to emergencies
  • increased payload, up from 20 tons 10 years ago, to more than 200 tons today (up to 226 tons for the Bourbon Harmattan)
  • great versatility, enabling them to transport and deliver bulk liquids (fuel oil and water)
  • a high standard of safety
  • class 2 dynamic positioning (about 10 vessels equipped)

SIROCCO, SHAMAL, NORTE… THE NEXT GENERATION OF FSIVs IN figures

  • 60 seats in the cabin
  • Cruising speed of 26 knots
  • 240 m² of deck space
  • 285 t deadweight

 

Optimized design

Ever faster: that's what's requested by our clients, who require a cruising speed of around 30 knots. To meet these expectations, we have designed a new series of vessels based on a specific design employing a flared hull - making it more comfortable for personnel - and increased payload capacity.

The main features of this series:

  • an ideal compromise between weight and speed, thanks to an aluminum hull
  • more comfort, with sound insulation and more ergonomic seats
  • exceptional maneuverability and increased operational safety, thanks to its Class 2 dynamic positioning system (DP2)
" The FSIVs are in line with the strategy established by BOURBON and its objective of operational excellence, the ability to anticipate market needs and offer our clients a fleet of the lastest, reliable, efficient, vessels built in series."
