ANTONOV Airlines in AN-124-100 compressor move

ANTONOV Airlines has transported four compressor skids on behalf of Bolloré Logistics China from Calgary, Canada to Mary, Turkmenistan on one of its seven AN-124-100 aircraft.
The compressor skids were recently transported for a Chinese Oil & Gas Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) company on four separate flights for a gas field in Turkmenistan.
Paul Bingley, commercial manager, ANTONOV Airlines said: "The AN-124-100 was the ideal aircraft to accommodate the oversized cargo.
"Due to the size and weight of the cargo, both the AN-124-100’s unique on-board crane system and extension ramps and mobile cranes were used for safe loading and offloading."
The consignment included a main skid, which measured 13.75m long, 5.30m wide, and 4.16m high, and weighed 81.5 tonnes, and a sub skid, which measured 7.65m long, 5.00m wide, and 2.44m high, and weighed 13.9 tonnes, in addition to miscellaneous equipment.
ANTONOV Airlines carries an adaptor on-board each of its aircraft, extending the lift capacity of its system to a total of 30 tonnes.
