Navigating on Ice and Arrival in Troll

The Ivan Papanin, used to transport the equipment and material needed to build the station, is an Ice-class cargo ship. To reach Antarctica, the ship had to break the ice that covers the ocean several times. After having left Cape Town, the first stop along her trip was near the Norwegian Troll Station. Here is some footage filmed during the ship's journey to Troll station.
