We would like to share with you, some case studies, showcasing some of the exciting projects we have been involved with recently:
AUSTRALIAN ANTARCTIC DIVISION
Million Year Ice Core Project
Year: 2021 – 2022
Astrotec are working with the Australian Antarctic Division to design and construct all electrical infrastructure to support the traverse and inland station for the MYIC project in Antarctica.
“The Australian Antarctic Division is gearing up to lead one of the most ambitious and challenging scientific projects yet undertaken in Antarctica – the quest to drill an ice core containing a million-year record of Earth’s climate and atmospheric composition.”
The extreme environmental conditions in Antarctica, dictates that the product selections and installations for this project are critical. We are fortunate to be working alongside some amazing people at the AAD, who have many years’ experiences in the icy continent.
As part of this project, we have wired generation containers, refrigeration containers, drill tent and workshop containers. This exciting project is currently ongoing. https://www.antarctica.gov.au/science/climate-processes-and-change/antarctic-palaeoclimate/million-year-ice-core/
AAD Scientific Modules for new Icebreaker
Astrotec were the successful tenderer for a project involving the electrical design and installation for 6 x scientific containers. These were highly specialised scientific laboratories for use by expeditioner’s whilst on board RSV Nuyina and for use in Antarctica as required. Some of these labs were classed as hazardous areas and were fitted with EX equipment.
As with all Antarctic related equipment, the materials selected and the installation requirements were carefully considered, for the extreme operating conditions where they will be used.
We thoroughly enjoyed working alongside the professional team at Taylor Bros.
