Award for Achievement in Polar Monitoring from the National Institute for Polar Research

June, 2015

Isuzu has been sending technicians as a member of the National Institute for Polar Research (NIPR) to Antarctica ever since the first Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition in 1956, currently in its 56th. On April 13th we received the Award for Achievement in Polar Monitoring from NIPR in honor of our long-term contributions to Antarctic research.

A certificate was conferred for the team members as a representative of Isuzu successive members.

We support the lives of the members stationed there and help with their work.

The Japanese Showa Station in Antarctica has been part of many achievements including the detection of the ozone hole in 1982, and global warming monitoring is currently being carried out there via a large atmospheric radar. Isuzu has contributed technology through the maintenance of our snow vehicles and engines (for both vehicles and power generators) that are used in this harsh natural environment. In this way we support the lives of the members stationed there and help with their work.
