Volga-Dnepr's high-speed generator rotor delivery to Canada

An IL-76TD-90VD freighter owned by the Russian Volga-Dnepr Airlines has delivered a 23 t generator rotor for power production from East Midlands airport (UK) to Saint Johns (Canada).

In order to make the rotor safe and secure for carriage, Volga-Dnepr worked with the shipper to design a suitable packing and stowage system because the existing skid under the rotor would not have been strong enough to resist the G-forces during the flight.

Following technical discussions with the customer's engineers and careful calculations, Volga-Dnepr's experts helped to design a simple yet strong bearing to enable secure lashing of the cargo.
