ABU DHABI / WAM

Masdar, the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, and the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) have successfully installed first solar panel system at an Australian Antarctic station. The aim of the project, which is the first solar array providing power to an Australian Antarctic research station, is to reduce reliance on diesel fuel, which is delivered yearly by AAD’s Antarctic icebreaker, the Aurora Australis, from Hobart, Tasmania.
The solar installation will provide up to 30kW of electric power to Cas-ey research station, located on Vincennes Bay in the Windmill Islands, just outside the Antarctic Circle, during the Austral summer months.
