Volga Dnepr transport oil pump to Turkmenistan

Volga Dnepr transport oil pump to Turkmenistan

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has transported an 11 tonne oil and gas pump from the Netherlands to Turkmenistan using an Ilyushin IL-76TD-90VD Freighter.

The airline transported the pump from Maastricht Aachen Airport in the Netherlands to Mary International Airport Turkmenistan on behalf of Agility Projects Rotterdam. After arriving in Mary it was transported by road to its customer based in Farab, Turkmenistan. For protection, the pump was transported inside a two tonne wooden crate for the whole journey.

Volga-Dnepr senior engineer for dangerous cargo, Azat Yakupov says the airline used a trailer and special cradles to load onto the aircraft’s rail system. He says: “We didn’t have any difficulties loading the pump because we have been regularly carrying such oil and gas cargoes for customers for 25 years and have accumulated huge experience of delivering similar shipments.”
