Bourbon Liberty 100 and 200
Number of ships
The Bourbon Liberty 100 and 200 series are diesel-electric ships designed for conventional and deepwater operations. Their advantages include improved fuel efficiency, cargo capacity, and manoeuvrability. The 91 ships delivered from China between 2007 and 2015 allowed Bourbon Maritime to modernize its global fleet and reduce its carbon footprint.
The many benefits of diesel-electric propulsion include a more efficient propulsion system, less pollution, increased operational efficiency, especially at slow speeds (important for applications such as dynamic positioning), and flexibility in locating machinery compartments.
