Nalunaq 2018 Timeline

  • 26JUN We arrive to Nanortalik. There, a Sandstorm telehandler will be waiting for us, which we bought in Reykjavik and is being shipped to Nanortalik.

  • 27JUN Landing craft arrives. We load Sandstorm (together with chains and chainsaw) to the landing craft and move to Nalunaq. Sanstorm pulls containers apart, we can set up tents. Sandstorm also fixed the road between the camp and the jetty. And then Sandstorm goes to clear ice at the portal. I will check with Poul Erik if we can borrow a frontloader from Nanortalik for this day only. We would take it to Nalunaq and then return to Nanortalik in the evening.

  • Later on 27JUN, all containers from Denmark arrive, which contain the crane and other extras.

  • 28JUN early early morning the crane is moved to Nalunaq. By that time, the crane can operate between the jetty and the camp. Our Sandstorm continues clearing ice at the portal.
