Two of Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ Antonov 124-100 freighters have fast tracked the delivery of 180 tonnes of oil and gas equipment from Saint Petersburg to Bratsk for the Talakan field located in the Yakutia region of Russia.
Volga-Dnepr’s planning specialists conducted a preliminary inspection of the cargo in Italy before the largest parts of the shipment – two 40-ton compressors and a 60-ton gas turbine - were shipped from Milan to Saint Petersburg by sea transport.
Delivery from the Russian capital of the North to the Talakan oil and gas field had to be organised within a tight timescale. Volga-Dnepr’s logistics experts were able to offer the most efficient solution to the customer, STS Logistics, by supplying two An-124-100 freighter aircraft, leasing cranes with 100 and 200-ton cargo capacity at the departure and arrival airports, and using Volga-Dnepr’s own patented handling equipment to reduce the time required for loading and unloading.
From Bratsk, the oil and gas equipment was carried to the Talakan field by ground and sea transport. STS Logistics, the general contractor for organising deliveries from Italy to the field in Yakutia, and a long-standing partner of Volga-Dnepr, expressed their gratitude to the airline’s team for their expertise and efficiency.
