During the summer of 1983 a 2 kW array of solar voltaic panels was used to power a drill which collected two cores of 154 m and 163 m length to bedrock on the Quelccaya ice cap in Peru. The operation and performance of this array are discussed, considering the need for future requirements in remote pristine areas of the world.
