725’000 USD trahv Bourbon Offshore Norrale

Norra valitsus määras Bourbon Offshore Norrale trahvi suuruses 5 miljonit NOK seoses Shetlandi saarte lähedal uppunud laevaga AHTS Bourbon Dolphin. Õnnetuses uppus 8 inimest, nende hulgas laeva uus kapten ning tema 14-aastane poeg.

Ametliku juurdluse käigus pole suudetud täpselt ära määrata õnnetuse tegelikku põhjust. Siiski arvatakse, et laev ei olnud valmis teostama oma tööülesanded antud momendil korrektselt: laeva kaptenil ei olnud piisavalt aega laeva ja tema funktsioonidega tutvumiseks, ta polnud koos töötanud ka meeskonnaga pardal, laeval puudusid juhendid tööfunktsioonide kohta.

Lloyd's List (05.01.2009):

The Norwegian state attorney issued the letter to the company, a division of the French offshore group, Bourbon, today stating the vessel was not properly prepared for the functions it was intended to perform, that it did not have manuals available for its main activities and it had not complied with the International Safety Management code.

The notice stated that the master, who joined the vessel in the Shetland Islands less than two weeks before the accident, had no previous experience of the anchor handler, was given only a one and a half hour familiarisation and hand-over, and had not previously worked with the other crew members. It also said that the vessel did not have manuals onboard on how it should perform its main function, namely anchor handling.
