Two of Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ Antonov 124-100 freighters fast-tracked the delivery of 180 tonnes of oil and gas equipment.
The shipment was flown from Saint Petersburg to Bratsk, Russia for the Talakan field located in the Yakutia region of Russia.
Volga-Dnepr conducted a preliminary inspection of the cargo in Italy before the largest parts of the shipment – two 40-tonne compressors and a 60-tonne gas turbine – were shipped from Milan to Saint Petersburg by sea.
Volga-Dnepr also leased cranes with 100- and 200-tonne cargo capacity to the customer, STS Logistics, at the departure and arrival airports.
From Bratsk, the oil and gas equipment was carried to the Talakan field by ground and sea transport.
