British Antarctic Survey Installs Second Crestchic Loadbank

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has recently installed a second Crestchic loadbank to safeguard critical data and the livelihood of scientists at two of its primary research stations, one of which is credited with the discovery of the ozone hole in 1985.

Responsible for the UK's national scientific activities in Antarctica, the BAS is one of the world's leading environmental research centres. Rothera and Halley are the two most significant stations at the two British research stations on the continent and the livelihood of the scientists and data backup depends on the power of generators due to the lack of an electrical grid.

Initially, the team at BAS approached Crestchic for a loadbank to test the power of the generators at the Halley VI station located on the Brunt Ice Shelf, Antarctica.
