Extreme demands require innovation
Neumayer Station III will be the first research station in the Antarctic to integrate research, operational and accommodation facilities in one building, situated on a platform above the snow surface, and connected to a garage in the snow. The two-storey, heated section of the building is erected on the 68 by 24 meter platform, within a protective casing. The platform itself rises 6 meters above the snow surface. The trench below the station is 8.20 meters deep. The overall height of the patented construction, from the base of the garage to the roof of the balloon hangar, is 29.20 meters.
