    Bourbon fined following Bourbon Dolphin disaster

    News // January 5, 2009

    BBC News Online reports that Bourbon Offshore Norway has been fined NKr 5 million - almost 500,000 - following the capsize of Bourbon Dolphin off Shetland in April 2007.

    Norway's national prosecutor said the new captain of the vessel had not been given enough time to learn about the crew and ship as he only had 90 minutes to take over.

    Bourbon Offshore Norway can appeal against the order, but has not yet commented on the fine.
