Sat Dome and Wind Farm

Some pictures from this morning, me and the Electrician conducted the checks of the Emergency lights and fire systems at the Wind Farm and Satellite Dome at Arrival Heights.

There are three largish wind turbines 330 kilowatt each which are connected to Scott Base and McMurdo Station. The Wind Turbines are maintained by our crews engineers and electricians.

The Satellite Earth Station dome is there to protect the 9.1m dish inside. My main tasking here is maintaining the equipment connected to the dish to insure we have phones and internet from NZ. There is fibre-optic cabling running all the way back to base from up here about 5 km.
