At the pole of Antarctica a new base of the Russian Research Station Vostok will be created as a base for scientists. The HT Group supports the project with comprehensive Services for medical care of the researchers. 

The HT Group built an operating room, intensive care room and a patient area with bathroom. A challenge is to realise a safe and long-lasting system which ensures the function. The extreme conditions, due to the long transport by ship and sledge, as well as the medical use, brings the systems of the HT Group to the limits of resilience. 

The pre-installation of all systems in St. Petersburg has taken place and now the building parts are moving in 40' container size to the southernmost point of the earth.
