The vessel has two VL-400 semi-integrated thrusters. The thrusters were designed with a low profile to accommodate the flat-work deck on the Geo Ranger. This limits the height of the engine room. The Geo Ranger also has two tunnel thrusters with air injection. A reduced-noise propeller design ensures uninterupted critical underwater measurements.
Veth Propulsion is part of Twin Disc.
