Another addition to the X-bow fleet
« on: December 14, 2011, 09:57:18 am »


Finally got around to posting these - Christened "Oceanic Sirius" in Ulsteinvik on the 1st Oct. Hull design SX120, purpose built for seismic exploration.

106m Length
28m Beam
Bollard pull 190Tons

Designed to tow 20 seismic cables of upto 9000m long.

Built and fitted out at th Ulstein yard in Norway - think we saw every combination of weather elements during the last few months of the rigging although it was usually driving rain and freezing winds  ;)
