Polar Duke is a high capacity 12 streamer seismic vessel and is Polar Duchess' sister vessel. She is designed for marine seismic operations with a strong focus on safety and optimised towing. The vessel is owned by Shearwater Geoservices and GC Rieber Shipping is responsible for technical management.
High 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.
