Volga-Dnepr's AN-124F in action again

The logistics specialists at Volga-Dnepr Gulf recently helped the Glasgow (Scotland)-based power provider Aggreko to fulfil a contract to supply a 200 MW diesel-fuelled power plant to a client in Harare.


Aggreko contracted Ruslan International, the AN-124 freighter joint venture between Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Antonov, to fly the 79 t shipment to the Zimbabwean capital in order to meet the tight delivery deadline.


Volga-Dnepr Gulf also provided a full logistics solution on the ground. While the bulk of the equipment for this project was shipped by sea and road from various hubs around the world, airfreight was identified as the only reliable and secure option to deliver time-critical switchgear equipment from Dubai (UAE).


The equipment consisted of nine pieces of up to 4 m in height. Discover more Breakbulk/Heavylift news in the dedicated supplement of today's ITJ 41-42/2016.
