Scientific polar station "Snezhinka" may appear in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug in 2025

Clean Arctic  
Its design has now been completed. The conclusion of the Main Department of State Expertise on the project is expected in late 2022 or early 2023.

The construction of the Snezhinka facilities will be able to start as early as next year. It is planned that the station will be launched in test mode in 2024, and will be put into operation at the end of 2025. The station will be able to simultaneously receive up to a hundred people who will work on its site all year round.

The project office for the development of the Arctic reported that the creation of the station promises to significantly strengthen the position of Russian science in the field of high latitude research.

The project is aimed primarily at the development of applied technologies aimed at reducing the environmental impact of humans on the nature of the Arctic, reducing the carbon footprint, and improving energy efficiency. The introduction of these developments will be a major step towards achieving the goals of sustainable development beyond the Arctic Circle.
