Bourbon and Horizon Maritime have announced a new joint venture, Bourbon Horizon AS, dedicated to providing marine services and operations for oil and gas fields, and wind farms, focusing on the North Sea and Canadian offshore markets.

Incorporated in Norway, the new company is strategically positioned in Fosnavag, Norway, and St. John’s, NL, with a base fleet of seven modern and capable offshore support vessels.

Cliff Gaetz as managing director of Bourbon Horizon AS will be supported by Bjorn Remoy and senior operational leads, Stale Kyrkjedelen and Colin Doody.

The partnership builds on natural synergies and shared values between the two shipowners, Bourbon and Horizon Maritime. With extensive experience in the harshest offshore environments, Bourbon Horizon AS will also offer comprehensive ship management services to other shipowners in the industry.

With more than 200 dedicated and experienced employees, the company says, including a deep pool of experienced seafarers from all over the world, Bourbon Horizon is well-equipped for any project.
