Planet Mars has never been as close before: until the end of February 2018, the Austrian Space Forum (OeWF) is conducting an international Mars simulation in the Dhofar region in Oman as part of the “AMADEE-18” mission. DB Schenker supports the OeWF’s space specialists and transports the highly sensitive space equipment, including robotic vehicles and space suits, from Austria to the desert of Oman.

DB Schenker is providing two sea freight containers for this challenging mission. The sensitive and worldwide unique equipment for the Mars simulation was loaded in Innsbruck and shipped to Oman. On site, both sea freight containers will serve as storage, in order to protect the expensive material of high quality from the extreme conditions in the desert.

The twelfth Mars simulation unites crew members from 20 nations worldwide and a total of 16 institutions. The international experts arrived in the Dhofar desert last week. On the “landing day”, February 8, 2018, the three-week simulation was kicked off: the team was cut off from the outside world and focused on versatile experiments in the Mars-like environment. The time-delayed communication between “Mars” (Oman) and “Earth” (Tyrol, Austria) is continuously controlled by top-class scientists from all over the world. The Mission Support Center in Innsbruck, which is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, acts as the hub for this.

The Head of Mission and Administrative Director of OeWF, Gernot Grömer, is pleased about this cooperation: “This is our most time-consuming mission so far. Hence we are very pleased that we have gained DB Schenker as an experienced and competent partner, who supports us in safely and reliably carrying highly sensitive equipment such as robots and space suits as well as our two spacesuit simulators to Oman.”

“We are very proudly supporting the OeWF as their logistics partner in their extraordinary mission. We wish all involved good luck for the execution of the mars simulation – we are looking forward to it and to our cooperation,“ says Helmut Schweighofer, CEO of DB Schenker in Austria und Southeastern Europe.

“We at DB Schenker are particularly pleased to be part of this unique project. Thanks to the exciting but also challenging logistics, we are able to show that, as a global service provider, we can deliver top performance even under the most extreme conditions,” explains Mario Aschbacher, Sales Manager of DB Schenker in Innsbruck, Salzburg and Kufstein.
