Ongoing projects


Hydrographic Research Vessel "Geo Ranger"


The 41-metre Geo Ranger has been designed in cooperation with Conoship International B.V. for

Geo Plus B.V. Once operational, she 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. The vessel will be fitted out with the latest sustainable technologies including advanced

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 vessel will be built under the supervision of Lloyd's Register

with completion scheduled for spring 2020.






D&A® electric is responsible for the design, implementation, commissioning and turn-key delivery of

the complete drive system according to the unique D&A® Eprop® concept, comprising:

- One (1) D&A® drive network panel, based on the D&A® Eprop® concept

- Two (2) Brake resistors to absorb reversing energy of the propeller

- Two (2) Brake resistors to absorb reversing energy of the bow thruster

- Two (2) D&A® Bridge control panel for D&A®Eprop® (PS and SB)

- Two (2) D&A® Bridge control panel for D&A®Ebow

- Two (2) D&A® Static Converters for the normal board net of the ship

- One (1) Harbour transformer

- Two (2) supply transformer for LARS supply and ROV supply

One (1) D&A® HMI (Human Machine Interface)

Two (2) Electric motors for D&A® Eprop® propulsion

- Two (2) Electric motors for D&A® Ebow (Tunnel thruster).

- Four (4) Aux generators for drive network supply, suitable for connection to a diesel engine


D&A® Eprop® has major advantages compared to existing propulsion systems. Due to these advantages,

D&A® Eprop® gives the ship a significant lower fuel consumption. The high thrust/power ratio of

D&A® Eprop® is available throughout the entire use of the propulsion. This gives extreme acceleration,

bollard pull capabilities and a higher speed of the ship; all combined in one single propulsion system.

Depending on the use of the ship, these savings can get as high as 40% in fuel, apart from the savings

in maintenance costs.
