Sister-ships Oceanic Sirius and Oceanic Vega have completed a round-the-clock, 10-day maintenance program at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam (DSAm). 

For eight of those days the two 106-meter vessels were in the yard’s 250-meter drydock no.4 in a tandem arrangement to maximize the efficiency of the yard's resources.

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

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 paint work

The work was overseen by CGG Eidesvik Ship Management AS, a longstanding Damen client.
