Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology together with Yamal governance made a full-scale model of the International Arctic Station “Snowflake” (the AHEAD project).

The miniature model shows all the key elements of the Station “Snowflake” and settlement Land of Hope. The model description is in Russian and English languages. Light-emitting diode (LED) strips demonstrate the operation modes of power equipment: wind and photo panels power generation, hydrogen energy storage, fuel (hydrogen) cells power generation.

The size of the “Snowflake” full-scale model is 2 x 3 m., and its mobility allows to transport, re-locate easily, and install the model at Russian and international exhibitions and forums.

Today the “Snowflake” full-scale model is exhibited at the Institute of Arctic Technologies, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Phystech.Arctic building, MIPT Dolgoprudny campus).
