Calling Antarctica

The SLNC Magothy recently called McMurdo Station, Antarctica as part of the annual resupply mission, Operation Deep Freeze.  The vessel arrived in Antarctica via New Zealand carrying close to 5,000 metric tons of construction materials and equipment that will be used to expand and support the remote outpost of the National Science Foundation (NSF).  Cargo handlers worked around the clock to discharge the materials before dismantling the temporary pier in preparation for winter and sending the pier materials back aboard the SLNC Magothy.  The SLNC Magothy is part of the Schuyler Line fleet and is currently on charter to Military Sealift Command, supporting operations around the globe.
