Show interest in cooperating, including preparing to supply equipment.

Korchunov said: "China has expressed its willingness to join and has shown interest in the project, including the supply of equipment." He added that South Korea has decided to participate in the construction work.

The International North Pole Station "Snowflake" should become a fully self-sufficient complex that can operate on the basis of renewable energy and hydrogen (excluding diesel). The station will consist of several dome-shaped buildings connected by passages. The distribution of buildings viewed from above is reminiscent of snowflakes, so the project received this name.
