Description

A PID-03M and EWC-4A-PS06 system was supplied to the Danish-Swedish LOMROG II expedition to the Lomonosov Ridge and the North Pole on board the Swedish Icebreaker Oden. The electric motor PID-03 and EWC-4A-PS06 was used to sample up to 2 km below the ice surface. The system was powered by a Honda generator and transported by the ship-based Eurocopter AS350 helicopter.

The PID-03M in these images includes a frame-mounted convertible tripod which can be used in both tripod mode and boom mode (as shown in these photos) depending on whether the probe is deployed down an ice crevasse or through a drilled ice hole.
