COMBINED INTERVIEW WITH THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
In June 2010, BOURBON announced its BOURBON 2015 Leadership Strategy plan, what does that mean for the Group?
I Christian Lefèvre, Chief Executive Ofﬁcer The perfect execution of the plan will mean satisfaction for our clients, for whom BOURBON is constantly working to provide utterly safe marine operations, performed by skilled and responsible crews, on modern and high-performance vessels with a high availability rate. Our ambition is to contribute to improving the safety and proﬁtability of their operations, guaranteeing them a vessel availability rate of 95%. To generate growth of 17% per year, we are investing 2 billion dollars over the period, to create a ﬂeet of 600 vessels and a workforce of 12,000 by 2015.
How are you securing ﬁnance for the plan?
I Laurent Renard, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Ofﬁcer The plan requires major investment, in terms of vessels, support functions such as maintenance, and people, in order to serve our clients to best effect. We have established a balanced solution to ﬁnance these investments: by generating cash ﬂow from operations, by disposing of assets totaling 500 million euros from 2010, and by a 400 million dollar loan over twelve years from China Exim Bank.

BOURBON is committed to a major reduction and constant improvement of the length of time that vessels are out of action. thus reducing travel time for engineers.) and common spare parts. BOURBON aims to reduce the breakdown rate by deploying “dynamic planned maintenance” and the sharing of best practices thanks to a ﬂeet management software. Equipment suppliers are encouraged to establish local bases. alternators. Having these inventories promotes the practice of equipment swap.Vessels always ready for operations An “industrial” maintenance organization. T he unavailability of a vessel may be caused by a breakdown or by planned technical stoppages in drydock or aﬂoat. In Nigeria. is the main Repair Center for vessels working in Angola. which capitalizes on direct experience on the ground to produce optimized preventive maintenance plans. Every site is supervised by a BOURBON superintendent and has a stock of critical equipment and spare parts. 16 RES RESPONDING TO TH CLIENT S NEEDS ESP SPONDING G THE CLIENT’S HE H NT T’S . Eight Repair Centers have been created close to operating areas. The parts can be used for breakdowns or periodic overhauls. for both planned and unplanned repairs. BOURBON can call on Piriou’s WAS (West Atlantic Shipyard) at Port Harcourt. BOURBON Repair Centers and standard exchange Pooling ﬂeet-support locally around the concept of a standardized Repair Center means that all shipmanagers can access onshore technical engineers and spare parts inventories near their operating area. Partner repair shipyards Another strand to the maintenance policy is to increase the number of repair shipyards near operating areas in order to reduce the vessels’ travel time to the yards. etc. Their inventories are primarily composed of critical equipment (engines. directly inspired by aeronautics and made possible by fleet standardization. thrusters. while the shipyards have the necessary skills to work directly on the equipment themselves. which helps improving vessels availability.

These are localized in strategic areas. enabling all shipmanagers to gain knowledge of technical and maintenance information.Critical operational equipment Standard exchange of vessel components The ﬁrst equipment swap operation on a support vessel was effected at the beginning of 2011 in Namibia on the PSV Bourbon Hermès. equivalent to the cost of several new vessels. These equipments were then repaired and overhauled in the workshops in concurrent operating time so they could then be used for further replacements. BOURBON has invested to build up stocks of these “show stoppers”. Three diesel engines and their alternators were replaced. it offers a cross organizational vision of the entire ﬂeet.
