There’s a lot of technical equipment at a polar research station. At Wasa we have seven snowmobiles, four tracked vehicles, two off-road vehicles, two diesel generators, a water system with a snow melter, an LPG system, an electrical system with solar panels, and a variety of other technical equipment and buildings to keep in good working condition.
Pär, Stefan and Ola are the expedition technicians. They make sure that the technical equipment works and is reliable. It’s no simple task. The wind, the cold and the dry air takes its toll on the equipment.
