A Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ IL-76TD-90VD freighter has delivered diesel generators weighing over 35 tons from East Midlands in the UK to Bagram, Afghanistan.
The oversized power generators, designed and manufactured by Dale Power Solutions, were placed in special shipping containers and rolled into the cargo cabin directly from the airside tarmac using a new wheeled loading system designed by Volga-Dnepr. The system eliminates the need for heavy tooling and third party loading equipment.
The flight to Afghanistan was operated for Transact International, a company providing specialist logistics solutions for military and humanitarian cargo. Transact has previously worked with Volga-Dnepr Airlines to transport fire fighting trucks, weighing 30 tons.
"We greatly appreciate the wonderful and flawless work that Volga-Dnepr has provided to us once again. Our success depends on the quality of service provided by our partners. We are proud to consider Volga-Dnepr our partner and look forward to many more years of partnership," said Thomas Anderson, President of Transact International, USA.
