I'm sure it's environmentally friendly, I doubt the BAS would permit anything in antarctica that isn't, and it's certainly going to be more efficent then the current outdated tractors and such they use down there.
And as for your last (or first as you put it) question, why not? Having modern technology down there will allow us to perform research better and safer (which is the entire point of being in antarctica), and will definitally be better for the environment.
