Polar Duchess

The Polar Duchess delivers ultra-wide tow, broadband and long offset configurations.

The Polar Duchess has a strong track record of working in frontier exploration areas, safely managing the HSE exposure associated with multiple deployment and recovery operations.

This means the Polar Duchess can efficiently acquire large survey programs in harsh operational conditions minimising standby time for our clients.
