POLAR DUCHESS

DESCRIPTION OF THE VESSEL

Ship built by Factorías Vulcano, S.A. Shipyard

Ship for the exploration of submarine oil fields by means of seismic detection systems, capable of using the most modern reservoir detection technologies with very high data processing precision, with high capacity in terms of modes of operation, number of managed detectors and Speed ??in seismic operations, designed for high drag capacity and high speed of free navigation and with very high maneuverability.

It uses the technology of 3D / 4D exploration, being able to locate with the maximum accuracy the displacements that take place in the crude bags during the exploitation.

Several state-of-the-art seismic and marine component systems are being implemented on this ship, including low resistance hull for increased energy efficiency, a new sound source management solution, and a centralized arrangement of the streamers
