The end of the world. Isle Alexandra Land. Getting here by military transport aircraft about 4 hours. Just a year ago, the Arctic region.
Temporary military camp.
Right at the city of air defense.
These are small modular constructions for technical equipment, for technical equipment.
In parallel, there is a big building. A modernized three-storey administrative building of 14 thousand square meters, is being built.
Construction of the complex «Arctic trefoil» on the archipelago, Franz Josef Land is nearing completion. Construction readiness of the administrative and housing complex «Arctic trefoil», It is close to 97 percent. Exceeding the 60 percent mark.
Administrative and housing complex «Arctic trefoil» to date — construction of the northern latitude. To the south — Kotelny archipelago on the island of 75th degree «Northern clover«.
Square «Arctic trefoil» is more than 14 thousand square meters. For a group of 150 people over for a few years.
Stocks for fuel and lubricants. Energy saving technologies are used to minimize energy consumption. Used for the technical floor, which will comfortably serve all communications, including in cold weather.
