    Late 1980's, early 90's

    At one time I owned part of company which supplied several Thermomax Solar Collector Systems and assorted heating equipment to a project in Antarctica...Vision Wall from Edmonton,Alberta supplied the high tech windows and ATCO Trailers from Calgary,Alberta provided the buildings.

    Unfortunately I was just involved in the front end of the project as I had sold my shares in 1991, just as the project was being shipped out the door. I once tried to chase down some feedback through Thermomax...never did hear how the project faired.

  • I've had...

    1 RRCC student, one RPA student and an employee all of who did a stint down there. One of them used to work on the hydronic heating systems. Scarry stories about knocking mamoth ice chunks off the flue pipes, and chasing glycol leaks on systems spread out all over the place.

    What a great place to check the performance of heating systems eh...

    It takes a special kind of person to do that kind of work, and I don't think I'm THAT kind of person.

    I'll see if I can scare them up.

    You thinking about going Joe?
