UK-based international project logistics specialist, Trans Global Projects Group (TGP) recently carried out a delivery project to one of the most remote locations on earth.

The project was for logistics management of a shipment of equipment and construction materials to the British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) Rothera Research Station at Rothera Point in Antarctica. The project cargo will be used for building a new wharf at Rothera Point and dismantling the old wharf.

Rothera is located 900 miles south of the tip of South America on Adelaide Island, and serves as a UK hub for polar science and will soon be home to the UK’s new state-of-the-art polar research vessel, RRS Sir David Attenborough.

Due to the delicate ecosystem of Antarctica, the teams from TGP had to ensure all cargo bound for Rothera remained completely contamination-free and in compliance with the British Antarctic Survey Biosecurity Handbook and The Polar Code.

CEO of Trans Global Projects Group, Colin Charnock explained, “Trans Global Projects won this contract thanks to our extensive track-record in biosecurity and quarantine procedures – most notably in our work with project shipments and logistics to Australia, which has some of the strictest biosecurity regulations in the world.”

Mr. Charnock added, “TGP is a recognized leader and expert in the field of biosecurity logistics, we offer consultancy services and human resources to our partners at all steps of the process, from the development of the biosecurity concept through to the implementation thereof.”

Previous to the delivery in Antarctica, a team of Trans Global Projects bio-security professionals worked at a specially prepared site to manage all aspects of the decontamination and loading processes at AV Dawson facilities at Teesport in Teesside, UK. The vessel used in the project underwent a similar decontamination process in accordance with the biosecurity plan outlined by Trans Global Projects.

The special delivery left Teeside on 22 November to begin the 9,600-mile trip to Rothera. The vessel is expected to arrive within the next five weeks. Upon arrival at Rothera, both the vessel’s crew and the Rothera teams will benefit from the 24-hours of summertime daylight, speeding up the unloading.
