This is a good article on the joint German-British Gravitational Wave Detector GEO600, which has been upgraded and is now conducting an 18-month run.

Am I missing something? What

Am I missing something? What arrangements are in place for the processing of all the data?

IIRC geo was listed

IIRC geo was listed previously as a potential source for einstien at home data, but at the time was running at lower sensitivity than the two detectors being used.

Yes, GEO is part of the LIGO collaboration. I do recall an ( ultimate ) aim expressed ( somewhere/when ) of triangulation between as many detectors as possible with the data pipe including E@H.
Cheers, Mike.
