Built in 2016 for Bourbon Offshore, the Horizon Arctic is an exceptional vessel. The modern designed vessel, with a bollard pull of 307 tonnes in boost mode and 193 tonnes in diesel electric mode, is able to service the most demanding of offshore clients, especially in the North Atlantic. Classified as a clean design vessel, and equipped with a dual propulsion system, the vessel complies with the stringent requirements for air emissions and discharges into the sea and can adapt power needs to the type of operation with diesel electric mode.
Chief Operating Officer Steve Widmeyer comments:
“With our experienced crews, this addition to our offshore fleet improves our abilities to safely respond to complex offshore operations in harsh weather environments for our clients.”
