Lanaud,
She got stuck in the Antarctic due to a decision to stay on later than normal in the season, hoping for the ice to harden enough to allow the unloading of heavy machinery. When it became apparent in early June 2002 that the vessel would not be able to free itself plans were made to resupply the vessel and remove most of the crew... this is what you see in the photo.
