Femte Maj Sø & Washington Land

Client: Avannaa Resources Ltd
Objective: Design and construction of a 20 person exploration field camp
Location: 81° N, 25° W & 80° N, 61° W
Date: 2011-2013

Creative logistical solution enabled the reuse of an entire camp in North Greenland operations

Over the course of 2011-2013 POLOG assisted Avannaa Resources with their North Greenland exploration activities.

First a basecamp in Mylius-Erichsen Land in NE Greenland in 2011, then in Washington Land in NW Greenland in 2012 and 2013.

POLOG provided consulting and on-site services relating to camp purchasing, construction and operation, and also provided logistical manpower for all camps.

POLOG planned and helped execute a winter transport operation of approximately 5 tons of equipment from  eastern to western North Greenland (both very remote sites) using a Basler DC3 aircraft equipped with skis.

POLOG also provided assistance with scientific field work.
