Founded alongside experienced ice masters and polar seafarers, FL Polar Operation was established to offer first-class, high latitude education and experiences. Our expertise and know-how is based on operating remote assets in the polar regions for more than 25 years.  Currently this includes a high profile German research vessel and a land-based station in Antarctica.

Our business is to realize polar projects, certify vessels and seafarers according to Polar Code, train personnel for jobs in the polar environment and advising ships maneuvering ice covered areas.

Our Goal

We are driven by our ambition to be a safe, sound, reliable and efficient service provider to our clients in education and the realization of polar projects in the variable Arctic and Antarctic. The environment and quality considerations play a key role in our service.
