BAM to Build New Wharf in Antarctica

A ship loaded with 4,500 tonnes of equipment needed for building a new wharf at Rothera Research Station in Antarctica has begun its month-long journey to the white continent, announced BAM International.

The new wharf, being built over the next two Antarctic seasons, will provide safe berthing and efficient unloading for the new polar research vessel the RRS Sir David Attenborough.

BAM engineer and project manager Martha McGowan said: “Having spent months designing and procuring every single piece of equipment we need to build this wharf, it has finally all come together.”

Construction partner BAM oversaw the loading of plant, 83 containers, permanent and temporary materials and 1,000 tonnes of steelwork onto the DS Wisconsin at Teesport in North Yorkshire.

The last of 83 containers is loaded onto the DS Wisconsin at Teesport before heading south to Antarctica.
