Station D Hope Bay was established in 1944 as the main base for Operation Tabarin but sea ice conditions prevented unloading of stores.

Later the base became a research station with survey, geology, geophysics, glaciology, meteorology, human and dog physiology as main studies.

Finally the station was transferred to Uruguay in 1997 and renamed Teniente Ruperto Elichiribehety Uruguayan Antarctic Scientific Station.
