Sister-ships ‘Oceanic Sirius’ and ‘Oceanic Vega’ have completed a round-the-clock, 10-day maintenance programme at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam.
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 primary reason for their visit to Amsterdam 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, Damen Shiprepair was able to undertake the work without interrupting or delaying the paintworks. This helped minimise valuable time spent at the yard.
