Welcome to Neumayer III Station

Neumayer III augments its power generators with one 30kW wind turbine, and will eventually have a complete wind farm to cover most of its needs.

Nine people generally winterover, and up to 50 can stay in summer. In December 1990 the first all-female group to winter in Antarctica staffed Neumayer. Two meteorologists, two geophysicists, two engineers, a radio operator, a cook and a doctor (also station leader) spent 14 months on the Ice, including nine months in complete isolation.
