Power

The Station is supplied with 240 volt power from a comprehensive solar system. It is the aim of the station to run solely on solar power. There is a diesel generator that can supply additional power with a petrol driven generator as back up; the generator is noisy and generates pollution as well as electricity, visitors are encouraged to save energy to avoid having to turn the generator on. Generated power is directed through an interactive inverter that provides mains quality power. The laboratories and accommodation huts are all serviced by 240 volt outlets.
