Premier Pits to the Antarctic
Pre-fabricated steel pit manufacturer, Premier Pits, has taken on a notable project that will see a Premier Pit embarking on a 9,000 mile journey to Antarctica.
A bespoke 6.9m Premier Working Pit will be installed at the British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) Rothera Research Station, located on Adelaide Island on the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. The pit will form part of the vehicles garage located within the new two storey 4500m2 Discovery Building, part of the Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme, constructed with partner BAM.
Premier Pits Sales Director, Dave Sylvester, said: “This has been a very special project for us here at Premier Pits. It’s very much a once in a lifetime moment for any company to supply a product to Antarctica, and we are extremely proud to have been able to work with BAS and Bam Nuttall to produce a pit that will help with the day to day maintenance of the BAS fleet of exploratory vehicles.”
