New Arctic wind farm endures harsh climate

Cleantech Group – The International Polar Foundation on Sunday plans to inaugurate the first polar base to be powered by wind turbines. Eight turbines are already operating in Antarctica in preparation for the launch of Belgium’s Princess Elizabeth Station. The turbines are expected to provide 230 volts of electricity for the station’s heating, computers, lights and scientific instruments. The station is expected to allow 20 scientists from Belgium and other nations to carry out research on climate change (see Proven Energy to power Antarctic station with wind).
