Yes but it is a poorman-bold (several medium chars, with slight offset).

In fact there is a beta-version of a bold-math-fourier (only latin and 
greek chars). Fonts were adapted from mines by Timur Mukhamedjanov 
(manyt thanks to him) and this beta version can be installed and used 
apart from standard fourier (but the installation requires standard 
fourier for textfonts).

Note that Timur changed the design of some glyphs, (\partialdiff eg) 
and I am not still sure to adopt the changes. Advices are welcome.


It contain (I hope) all what is needed to install a beta version 
(standard TDS tree)

to achive installation you have to
1 - install all the stuff in your texmf tree
2 - run mktexlsr
3 - open fourier-timur.map and copy-paste the four lines in your main 
fourier.map file (or add Map fourier-timur.map in updmap.cfg)
4 - run updmap

replace \usepackage{fourier} by 

You should be able to use \boldmath <some math> \unboldmath
