Keel Laid for Geo Ranger

Dutch hydrographic survey specialist Geo Plus B.V. and the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard have held a keel laying ceremony for the survey/ROV vessel Geo Ranger.

Expected to be delivered in April 2020, the 41-metre Geo Ranger will be available for charter by parties conducting hydrographic surveys, such as companies involved in dredging, and the building and maintenance of offshore wind farms.

Alewijnse Marine is in charge of the delivery of the complete electrical installation for the vessel.

The vessel will be fitted out with diesel-electric propulsion, LED lightning, and heat recovery from the cooling water of the diesel generators. She will also not have an emergency diesel generator on board. Emergency power will instead be supplied by batteries.

The Geo Ranger has been designed by the yard in cooperation with Conoship International B.V.
