Bridge deck hydrographic research ship Geo Ranger on transport

Today another milestone has been set for yard number 864: the bridge deck for the hydrographic research vessel Geo Ranger has been transported to hall 8.

In recent weeks, the bridge deck was produced and assembled in halls 1, 2 and 3. At the same time, various sections have been welded together in Hall 8, so that the contours of the electric ship are clearly visible. The bridge deck is expected to be placed on the ship next week.

In April 2019, Royal Niestern Sander and Geo Plus B.V. signed the contract for the construction of the hydrogafic research vessel “Geo Ranger”, yard number 864. This ship was designed together with Conoship International B.V. and will be rented by our client from spring 2020 to parties conducting research, such as dredging companies and companies that build and maintain offshore wind farms. The ship will be built under the supervision of Lloyd’s Register.
