Last week, we posted a video featuring Brian Newham explained the process of melting snow into water for drinking and cleaning. In this video Richmond Dykes talks us through the systems in place for generating electricity for the Ice Train, including the two 240V generators, the battery store and how the team have planned against fire and crevasse falls. For the technical and the not-so-technical amongst you, this short film answers many of the questions we’ve had based on “how does that work?”. We hope you find it interesting.

These videos are part of an on-going series of videos which cover some of the main operational sides of life on the expedition.
