THE WINSTON WONG BIO-INSPIRED ICE VEHICLE (BIV)

The Winston Wong Bio-Inspired Ice Vehicle is the lead vehicle of the Moon Regan Transantarctic Expedition. The BIV is an agile route-finder - with a single driver - for the two Science Support Vehicles (SSVs) which carry the other ten members of the Expedition and act as mobile laboratories for the Expedition.

The BIV is light, bio-fuelled and engineered to counter anything that the coldest, driest, windiest place on Earth can throw at it.

Commissioned by Expedition founders Andrew Regan and Andrew Moon, the BIV bears the name of the Expedition sponsor, Professor Winston Wong, leading Taiwanese businessman and alumnus and generous donor to Imperial College London, the Expedition’s science partner.
