A huge thank you to our partners, the companies that have worked closely with us to help ensure we deliver the best innovative technology to achieve our goals. They have gone above and beyond to make expeditions possible and we greatly appreciate their generosity and support.
- BREITLING WATCHES
Jason is sponsored by this amazing watch maker who provide him with an “Emergency” beacon watch. “I hope I never have to test the effectiveness of my emergency watch but I must say it does give me a great feeling of security wearing it” Jason De Carteret.
- IAN NISBETT DESIGN
Ian was the key designer and totally gave the Polar Vehicle its stunning looks. Hardly an hour goes by when the vehicle does not receive praise for the way it looks. Ian completed this design in record time and demonstrated an amazing synergy with the client to deliver over and above expectations. We consider Ian very much part of this expedition team and if you are looking for his skill set, then we can highly recommend him.
- JACK MORTON
A truly professional global company who fully supported the expedition project from the start, without them we would not be where we are today. The support and assistance that was given to the expedition in the early times gave us a great foundation to build upon.
- 66° NORTH
The Marketing Director saw an opportunity to demonstrate just how good the new range of 66° North “Polar” grade equipment really was. Full sponsorship was given for the entire expedition team with this amazing kit. A huge thank you goes out from the whole team and we are proud to wear this proven, high quality brand.
- GBR TECHNOLOGY LTD
Working with GBR Technology and DuPont on their new Krytox PTFE grease gave us the option of replacing the standard grease with greases that could deliver reliable protection in the extreme temperatures we will face in Antarctica.
- FLEXCELL TECHNOLOGY
Flexcell donated solar panels to the expedition. The Flexcell panels are in our opinion one of the best performing systems available on the market, with a reliability second to none. The solar cells power all of the on-board communication and reading devices. Three of the four solar cells are mounted on the roof of Polar and the fourth is mounted over the back of the rear scoop.
- HUMAN EDGE TECH
This company has provided the expedition with a great deal of advice and made us aware of a number of new technologies within the Iridium global communication systems. This knowledge has helped to make this expedition very different from the rest that have made it to the South Pole. The ability of streaming back HD Video from the field will be a first.
- LINCOLN ELECTRIC
Lincoln Electric has donated the top of the range Invertec V205-T AC/DC TIG welder and Power MIG 180C welder. The superior machines allow us to generate a higher degree of accuracy and safety on all major components, enabling us to use lighter materials whilst maintaining strength.
- MIRAGE MOTOR SPORT
The Mirage Motor Sport workshop is where the style of the Polar Vehicle was truly brought to life. A huge thank you to Darren and his team for all the work and assistance you have put into this project over the past year.
- PROMETHEUS MEDICAL
Prometheus Medical is the leading company in providing medical expertise and support in the most challenging areas around the globe. Their in-depth knowledge, experience and credibility within both emergency medicine and the military environment means that they can offer their clients the best and most effective solution to their needs, including medical training, consultancy and strategic advice to the latest medical equipment. We are proud to have Prometheus medical as our expedition medical advisors.
- RECON INSTRUMENTS
Having GPS information systems integrated into equipment such as your goggles is a brilliant step forward in smaller and easier to use technology. Many thanks to Olivier for sponsoring the expedition team members with a set of goggles each.
- SPARKS TOYOTA
Sparks provided the base vehicle and fitted the supercharger unit. The importance of faultless engineering was highlighted and they allocated their best engineer to fit our Toyota with the TRD Supercharger. Thank you. Jamie at Sparks has been an outstanding person to deal with and I am sure we will be using them again.
- VIO CAMERAS
VIO provided state of the art camera technology to record the journey in a way that has never been done before. It is a great honour to do something that will be forever a first! Many thanks to all at Vio for the help and unique alterations; this has been a great partnership.
