VIDEO: Polar expedition winters with plastic drums
By Marc Martens
While the crew of expedition Discovery Greenland explores the polar cap, they rely on CurTec drums to protect their equipment and supplies at extremely low temperatures against moisture ingress and other influences.
After the first eight months of the expedition, the members are starting to prepare wintering among the ice. The video shows spectacular images above and below the ice and from the air during paragliding. Winter camp is set up and stocked with fuel and food supplies.
CurTec is official technical partner of UNDER THE POLE® and supports the polar expedition Discovery Greenland with high performance packaging. Our watertight and robust drums offer protection to the crew’s expensive equipment and supplies throughout their long journey.
