Offshore passenger transportation provider Bourbon Mobility has partnered with Moment to provide an entertainment offer on board its vessels.

In an effort to enhance its transport service of staff to oil platforms in West Africa, Bourbon Mobility has opted to have its fleet of Surfers outfitted with portable streaming servers, which enables passengers to access movies, documentaries and games on their mobile devices throughout their journey. So far 15 vessels have been equipped with the Moment digital entertainment solution.

Aboard Bourbon Mobility’s ships, passengers in transit from ports in Angola, Congo, and Nigeria to offshore oil rigs can connect their devices (smartphone, laptop, tablet) to a local Wi-Fi network and access a wide range of entertainment solutions designed for them. The customized platform provides access to international and local movies, documentaries and games. Moment streaming service will be improving the frequent journeys of at least 200,000 naval passengers a year.

“The passengers are the core of our business. We want them to have a pleasant journey in our Surfers such as the business class of airlines. We are very pleased to bring them new entertainment services like the ones of Moment. Moment’s innovative technology and interesting range of contents will truly enhance our customers’ on board experience across West Africa,” said François Leslé, CEO of Bourbon Mobility.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Bourbon Mobility and expand our services in the maritime market in Africa. The African continent is currently one of the world’s fastest growing economic regions. Entering this market is a priority for Moment and will help us consolidate our position as a key player in the business of digital entertainment for out-of-home environments,” said Tanguy Morel, Moment’s CEO.

In the following months, Moment and Bourbon Mobility will pursue their partnership with the deployment of this platform to more vessels and also on shuttle buses, a new service offered by the maritime transport company.
