Cool box Antarctic station on the move
Germany’s latest Antarctic station, Neumayer III, is being loaded onboard the 9,556 dwt Danish general cargoship Naja Arctic at Bremerhaven. The station is the third to carry the Neumayer name. Its predecessors were lost to the snow. The material for the €26m ($38m) station weighs in at 3,500 tonnes. The first construction phase will begin in the middle of December and is expected to last until March 2008. Ralf Witthohn
