Diesel-electric ship of the FESCO Transport Group "Vasily Golovnin" arrived at the Indian Antarctic research station "Bharati". This is the first point of the expedition.

According to the FESCO press service, it took the vessel almost two weeks to overcome the dense ice cover and numerous icebergs. This year the summer in Antarctica turned out to be abnormally cold - in the Prydz Bay, on the shore of which the station is located, ice fast ice is still preserved.

As the director of the FESCO branch in Vladivostok, Igor Sharkov, said, Vasily Golovnin delivered more than 500 tons of cargo to the station: fuel, food, equipment.

Unloading takes place both from the board of the vessel and with the help of two helicopters. The crew will need about a week to complete all cargo operations.

The second point of the expedition is the Indian station "Maitri". Vasily Golovnin will go there in early March, after the completion of unloading. From the first station, the diesel-electric ship will take the accumulated waste and used equipment.
