Volga-Dnepr transports its largest outsized piece onboard An-124-150


Volga-Dnepr Airlines, has recently transported a large custom-built compressor from Zurich (Switzerland) to Abu Dhabi (UAE) on its Antonov 124-150 aircraft.

The delivery was organized in partnership with GEODIS, the Group’s long-standing customer.

The project has been one-of-the kind as the single piece, measuring 15.65 x 4.40 x 3.85 mts and weighing 100 tonnes, was one of the largest out-of-gauge shipments ever carried aboard An-124-150.

Artemiy Ivanovskiy, Regional manager IMEA, Volga-Dnepr says, “With strict delivery deadlines from the onset we were battling with many challenges from production, assembly, operations handling and other facets.”

“Thanks to clear and straightforward communication with all the stakeholders we were able to resolve them and come up with a comprehensive action plan to accomplish this complex transportation, meeting customer’s requirements and getting positive feedback in the end.”
