FESCO renews contract to supply India’s research stations in Antarctica

FESCO Transportation Group and India’s National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research have renewed the contract for the supply and delivery to the Indian Antarctic research stations in 2020-2021. This will be the third expedition under the contract with NCPOR. The icebreaker Vasiliy Golovnin which will start a new voyage from Cape Town in South Africa from Dec 2020, will deliver general cargo, food and fuel to the Indian stations Bharati and Maitri, and take the written-off equipment, technical and domestic waste out. NCPOR scientists will also join the expedition to carry out research activities. Two helicopters and a self-propelled barge will operate from the vessel to unload the cargo on the unequipped shore. The voyage will last until April 2021.
