At the dawn of the new millennium, a small group of people, led by polar expert Alain Hubert, decided to build a research station on the South Pole. They wanted to construct a station, respecting not only the rules, but also the spirit of the protocol of the Antarctic Treaty. The team has based its plans on solid technical studies in order to construct a zero emission prototype, powerful and aesthetic. The station has become a symbol of a new way of thinking when it comes to impact on the environment.
