Sister-vessels Oceanic Sirius and Oceanic Vega have completed a round-the-clock, ten-day maintenance program at Damen’s yard, Damen said on Thursday, December 20

According to the company, for eight of those days the two 106-meter vessels were in the yard’s 250-meter drydock in a tandem arrangement, to maximize the efficient use of resources.

The twin SX120 type seismic research vessels are owned by CGG Eidesvik Ship Management, a joint venture between Eidesvik Offshore and CGG. They were built by Ulstein Verft in Norway.

The primary reason for their visit to DSAm was to have a series of repairs and upgrades as well as their hulls cleaned and repainted.

The repairs and upgrades included maintenance on the propeller nozzles of both vessels and, by tenting the area around the propellers, DSAm was able to undertake the work without interrupting or delaying the paintworks. Damen said that this helped minimize valuable time spent at the yard. The two vessels departed DSAm on November 4.

The works were overseen by CGG Eidesvik Ship Management.

Tjeerd Schulting, managing director of DSAm, added: “When riding a tandem, one is steering and one is working the pedals. Only excellent team work will bring you quickly and safely over the finishing line.”
