Polar Duchess is a high capacity 12 streamer seismic vessel and is Polar Duke's sister vessel. She is designed for marine seismic operations with a strong focus on safety, optimised towing and high transit speed. The vessel is owned by Shearwater Geoservices and GC Rieber Shipping is responsible for technical management.
Higher transit speed will increase vessel revenues, while lower fuel consumption will reduce the environmental impact and operating costs. Overall, the vessel is expected to be among the most cost efficient in the industry.
