the parts for three wind mills that the Kiwis will be erecting in the summer
of 2009-2010. It's a joint project with the New Zealanders taking the lead,
and it should provide all the power that Scott Base requires. However, they
will still be tied in to the overall grid, and will be able to receive power
from the generators at McMurdo Station if necessary. It is intended as a
pilot project, and if it works well more wind mills may be erected to
provide the bulk of power for McMurdo Station as well.
