The Hybrid Survey vessel GEO FOCUS successfull completed the inspection-surveys on the German coast near Lubmin.

In the meantime she returned to Belgium for cableroute surveys in the Belgian part of the North Sea commissioned by G-tec.

This a seabedsurvey for main client ELIA Belgian Offshore Grid project which will connect future Belgian wind farms with the onshore grid near the harbour of Zeebrugge. In the near future this Belgian grid will be connected to the European super grid that would ultimately interconnect the various European countries with a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power grid.

Our multipurpose ship GEO-SOLUTION is april 2013 transported by truck to the largest Romanian port on the Black Sea, Constanţa. Our client, VAN OORD DREDGING AND MARINE CONTRACTORS - The Netherlands has been awarded for the completion of the Northern Breakwater of the harbour. The extension is 1100 metres length in 26 m. deep water. GEO PLUS will give survey-support during a longer period. This project will start in may 2013. Normally our ship should have been transported on board of a dredger but for flexibility reasons we have chosen for transport by truck.

The GEO EXPLORER in the Baydaratskaja Bay.
Geo Plus is this season active for the fifth consecutive year with the GEO EXPLORER for measuring and fast rescue work in the Baydaratskaja Bay (Siberia). This vessel is is equiped with EM 3002D multibeam Kongsberg.


In the beginning of 2013 the GEO EXPLORER has completed the final surveys around the first phase of Maasvlakte 2, part of Port Rotterdam, Holland. Client PUMA, the project organisation of the expansion Maasvlakte 2, is a collaboration of the dredging companies Boskalis and Van Oord. PUMA commissioned by Port of Rotterdam completes between 2008 and 2013 the first phase of Maasvlakte 2.

Maasvlakte 2 is the western expansion of the Rotterdam port area in the North Sea. A total surface area of 2,000 hectares will be created. Future containerships will have a deeper draught than can be accommodated by existing ports. By effectively responding to this development with a 20-m [New Amsterdam Water Level (NAP.)] deep port basin directly on the sea, Rotterdam can assure itself of a unique position in the European market. This project will be a state-of-the-art industrial site that connects seamlessly to the existing Maasvlakte and other infrastructure in the Netherlands and the huge industrial Ruhrgebiet in Germany. As already mentioned, in 2013 the first phase will be completed and 400 hectares of sites are allocated.

Creating the Maasvlakte 2 in the North Sea is a typical example of the dutch knowledge and technics creating projects in the sea. In this case even the seawaterpower has been exploited by moving huge amounts of sand to a desirable location. Read all information of this unique project: http://www.maasvlakte2.com
