We decommissioned and removed the bulk fuel storage facilities 650km north of Scott Base. This included a 400,000 litre diesel tank and 11 x 3,000 litre waste oil sludge tanks. The work required gas testing, cleaning, removing contamination and plasma cutting of tanks with all waste, sludge, and sundry items required to be removed from site and disposed of safely in New Zealand.
It was crucial that the project had no impact on wildlife and be undertaken on a short four week programme to work in with flight access from New Zealand.
In addition, we dismantled a D4 bulldozer which was shipped to Canterbury Museum in Christchurch, reassembled and is now part of the Antarctica Exhibition
