Construction of the Fuel Platform

Thanks to the joint efforts of all members of the 2009-2010 BELARE team, the construction of the fuel platform next to the Princess Elisabeth Station on Utsteinen Ridge was completed in just under four days.

Despite strong winds, the team kept on digging, drilling and bolting to install some sixty meters of steel on the ridge, making sure there will be a safe storage platform for fuel barrels for the vehicles.
