Work on Hydrographic Research Vessel Geo Ranger in Full Swing

The construction activities on the hydrographic research vessel Geo Ranger for Geo Plus B.V. are moving ahead according to plan, the Dutch Shipyard Royal Niestern Sander said in its latest announcement. 

Once operational, this vessel will be available to charter by parties conducting hydrographic surveys, such as companies involved in dredging and the building and maintenance of offshore wind farms.

The vessel, measuring 41 meters in length, has been designed by Niestern Sander in cooperation with Conoship International B.V.

“The vessel will be built under the supervision of Lloyd’s Register and is scheduled to be delivered in April 2020. Meanwhile, the construction of yard number 864 is in full swing at the Delfzijl shipyard,” said Niestern Sander.

Niestern Sander has contracted Alewijnse Marine for the complete electrical installation on board of the Geo Ranger.
