MISSION ACCOMPLISHED - Page 2 of 4

 

Sir Ranulf Fiennes

Conceived and put into action by Sir Ranulf Fiennes, who, unfortunately, through an injury had to leave the operation in the early days.
   In such extreme conditions, simply removing a glove to tie a loose ski strapping has its consequences.

Commenting on the expedition and its achievements, Sir Ranulph Fiennes said: “They are the first team ever to camp throughout the Antarctic winter in the permanent darkness and temperatures as low as -60° C. And, they achieved one of the longest Antarctic journeys in winter.

When the Cat C6Ns did not require servicing - not an easy task in sub-zero temperatures - the machines had to be dug out of snow drifts before any progress could be made.

“In addition, through their association with the international charity ‘Seeing is Believing’, which is committed to eradicating avoidable blindness in the developing world, the expedition has raised funds which are being matched dollar for dollar by Standard Chartered Bank.”

With both engineers and equipment brought back to base camp safely, Spencer Smirl commented on the personal experience of the expedition: “This was an unbelievable journey, pitting man and machine against the most unpredictable and harsh conditions on the planet.

“When you are relying on a Cat D6N to travel in temperatures as low as -60 ° C, in the dark, you know your focus has to be on the performance of the machine.
