Damen Welcomes CGG Eidesvik Seismic Vessels for 10-Day Pit Stop

Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam (DSAm) has completed a 10-day maintenance program on seismic research vessels Oceanic Sirius and Oceanic Vega.

For eight of those days the two 106-metre vessels were in the yard’s 250-metre drydock no.4 in a tandem arrangement, to maximise 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. The builder was 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, Damen explains. The repairs and upgrades included maintenance on the propeller nozzles of both vessels.

The works were overseen by CGG Eidesvik Ship Management, whose representative said: “The crew and staff members from Oceanic Vega and Oceanic Sirius were pleased with the mutual cooperation and impressed by the quick response on several repair items related to the seismic equipment on board. The safety level and culture were also up to both parties’ expectations and standards.

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.”
