In 1989, Pelly secured a contract with the British Government to build a runway and ancillary items that included a hanger, large fuel storage tanks, and a water system. The project was located on Adelaide Island on the Antarctic Peninsula approximately 1,000 miles South of Cape Horn. An inspection from the World Wildlife Federation resulted in a compliment regarding the clean, pollution-free work site.
