Extract from an interview with Bourbon Offshore Norway in the Norwegian magazine ‘Maritimt Magasin’, October 2012:

“The ships are designed according to Bourbon Offshore Norway's demanding specifications, and are extremely efficient. In addition to dedicated tanks, we also use MACS tanks that can combine dry bulk and liquid bulk. While regular supply ships typically carry six or seven different types of cargo, these ships can carry 21 different products in one trip. The ships can therefore carry a much larger range of products, which provides greater flexibility. The ships have eight MACS tanks on board, and four of these are low flashpoint tanks, meaning that they can carry flammable content. In addition, there are 12 ordinary tanks. All tanks have their own pump to be able to unload the tanks independently, and each tank has a separate pipe system. This makes unloading safer and more efficient.
