Packing cargo

 Thursday 4th of August 2016

View of the arranged cargo

The amount of equipment to either ship back or to store on overwintering sledges has built up. In the next week all the equipment on the picture will be organized and removed.

What we have done today:

  1. Tuned tower and increased length of inclined trench to allow the drill to tip
  2. Tested linear motors to tilt the tower
  3. Tested the winch controller to operate winch
  4. Worked on tubes and power for drill liquid recovery station
  5. Brought drillers cabin down and set it up in the drill trench
  6. Resampled snow surface profile in the clean snow area
  7. Preparing missions and camp close down
  8. Documented mechanic garage

Ad 5: All the windows delivered by Svedan/Viessmann were 3 cm too small on each dimension. We have been in contact with the companies ad will get new windows next year.

Weather today: Overcast all day. Temperatures -10 °C all day. Wind 10 kn from W all day.
