Because our team is well-represented by journeymen in the skilled trades, operations and maintenance activities are a natural fit for Polar Field Services. For more than a decade, we have been meeting the challenge of delivering all services required to sustain a human population while supporting ongoing research at Summit Station on Greenland’s ice sheet. We are deployed at Summit year-round, applying expertise in station management, food service, mechanical/rolling stock maintenance, facility maintenance, science technology, cargo & aircraft operations, fuels management, renewable energy and construction to keep this complex research platform running smoothly.

We also oversee science facilities in the NARL near Barrow, Alaska; and we provide operations and maintenance support to the Toolik Field Station, on the North Slope of Alaska’s Brooks Range.

If you need facilities support services, give us a call or send us an email.
