Neumayer Station III
Antarctica, Antarctica

Completion date 2009

Living and working on 200 metres of thick ice

A new building concept has been developed for the new polar research facility, which meets the requirements in terms of environmental impact, operating time and modern equipment for research and logistics. A hydraulic lifting system regularly adjusts the building with the rising snow level so that it remains accessible at all times and can be completely dismantled at the end of its planned 25 year life cycle.

The basins and showers were fitted with GROHE faucets. The GROHE Eurostyle single-lever mixer from the standard range withstands even the most extreme conditions thanks to its high level of functionality. The shower fittings from the GROHE Tempesta series guarantee a pleasant shower experience whilst conserving water.
