C-MAR’s DP services for Bourbon Offshore fleet
C-MAR, an international marine and offshore services business, has won a new contract with Bourbon Offshore.
C-MAR says that the three-year agreement, will start in January 2015 and see C-MAR supply Dynamic Positioning assurance services to one of the largest offshore vessel owners in the world.
C-MAR notes that this significant contract win comes in response to the increasing requirement by oil majors for third-party vetting of fleet owners’ DP assurance to enhance the resilience of support vessel operations. The strategic decision by Bourbon Offshore to appoint an independent auditor for its entire DP Fleet will generate real consistency in the DP performance of the company’s vessels while also ensuring that they adhere to the highest industry standards, C-MAR further explains.
Peter Aylott, Chief Operating Officer of C-MAR Group, said: “This is a significant achievement for C-MAR and is the second global fleet contract award that we have secured in as many years. It also demonstrates the continued growth of client recognition for our DP Centre assurance services around the world.”
C-MAR’s London-based Dynamic Positioning Centre will provide standardised Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA), DP audits and more bespoke DP services as well as training support. The partnership arrangement will aim to deliver more uniform standards, enhance overall capability and consolidate the reputation of both organisations.
C-MAR has additional training centres in the strategic locations of Brazil, Mumbai and Singapore.
