The Brazilian Navy ordered a HERCon™ temporary camp from Weatherhaven International. This camp was installed in Antarctica and consisted of:

  • Office and communication room
  • Medical facility
  • Corridors connecting all areas
  • General storage areas
  • A structure for dry clothes
  • Workshop
  • Chemical laboratory, and
  • Containerised cold storage.

The camp was also required to have external electrical reticulation including power generation, a containerised water purification plant and storage, as well as a sewerage treatment plant with an incinerator. These units passed through eight ports before arriving in Antarctica.
