Morris Site Machinery is cool with major order for Antarctic project
We’ve completed a significant order for our robust site equipment for use in the most remote and challenging construction location in the Antarctic to support a pioneering research project.
Specially adapted equipment was shipped 9,000 miles to help build a jetty for the new polar research ship the RRS Sir David Attenborough.
Lighting towers, generators, welders, pumps and pressure washers will play their part on a programme to modernise UK Antarctic research facilities, redeveloping the wharf at Rothera Research Station to accommodate the recently launched ship.
All the equipment supplied was fitted with cold weather packs and 2000 hour spares to ensure continuous performance under the tough weather conditions.
The equipment was assembled and packaged in sterile conditions at our plants in Four Ashes, Wolverhampton, and Gosberton, Lincolnshire, to ensure zero contamination at their final destination.
UK Sales Director, Richard Denholm, said: “Our equipment is built to perform in the harshest of conditions and they don’t come tougher than Antarctica, which is the highest, driest, coldest and windiest continent on earth.
“We are proud to be supporting work which will help British scientists carry out research into some of the most important environmental issues facing our planet.”
We have sent out seven SMC TL90 Ultimate lighting towers providing fuel efficient and crisp, clear instant light with up to 50,000 hours use. Other equipment that has been shipped include two 500A ArcGen Welders, two 150kVA Inmesol generators and two 3000psi Hilta diesel pressure washers.Back to news
