Cumulation of knowledge.

After about 18 years of hydrography GEO PLUS Holland has gathered a lot of practical experience.
All our present knowledge is bundled in this new ship, the GEO FOCUS.
The results and conclusions of this way of permanent education we shall again apply to our future ships. Pantha rhei.
The world of hydrographic survey is changing. Farewell to the big unwieldly survey-ships using a lot of diesel.
GEO PLUS Holland thinks that the future is for agile, stable, cost-effective ships, special designed for their jobs and using considerable less diesel.

The diesel-direct mode is used for cruising, but in working conditions like dynamic-positioning with lower speed, the ship can be used in diesel-electric mode.
This results at least in two advantages:
1. Less noise under the ship, aming for a better quality of the measuring data.
2. Better combustion in the main engines. This result in less maintenance and longer working periods.
