Horizon Maritime sets up shop in Norway with Bourbon AHTS vessel deal

Canadian owner Horizon Maritime has completed the takeover of the 2016-built anchor handling tug supply vessel Bourbon Arctic from Bourbon and renamed the vessel Horizon Arctic.

“The Horizon Arctic takes its place alongside Horizon Maritime’s growing fleet of harsh environment vessels, and we are delighted that this state of the art ship is available to help our customers face the challenge of operating in the North Sea, the Barents Sea and beyond,” said Sean Leet, CEO of the Horizon Maritime.

The acquisition deal also marks the launch of Horizon’s newly incorporated Norwegian branch, Horizon Maritime Offshore, headquartered in Aalesund. The new branch is led by general manager, Borge Nakken, former chief operating officer of Farstad Shipping.

The vessel has now returned to work after drydocking at Westcon shipyard in Norway.

Horizon Maritime currently runs a fleet of three OSVs including the latest addition.
