Antarctica, Neumayer Research Station.
Dismantling at -20˚C in summer.
After almost 11 years of operation, the Neumayer Research Station at the South Pole must go. Threatening to the deformation of the ice shelf and continuous snow accumulation the station had grown obsolete.
Trendelkamp faced the complex challenge. The existing station, under extremely heavy snow loads, had to be dismantled and relocated. The station contained multiple accommodation and laboratory containers. The containers (30 to 50 meters in length) made of steel with a diameter of 8 meters each.
