Volga-Dnepr transports 14-tonne trailer using Ilyushin freighter

Volga-Dnepr Airlines recently transported a 14-tonne multi-wheel trailer and 30 tonnes of specialist equipment that was needed to repair Russia’s only natural gas liquefaction plant, Sakhalin-2.
The transportation project required operations using Antonov-124-100 and Ilyushin-76TD-90VD freighters from the airline’s fleet to move equipment from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Moscow to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on the Russian island of Sakhalin.
Onboard the IL-76TD-90VD flight from Moscow was a 14-tonne capacity heavy-duty multi-wheel trailer measuring 6x3x1 metres that was used to deliver a new compressor to the Sakhalin-2 site.
This coincided with the arrival of 30 tonnes of special repair equipment carried from Kuala Lumpur on one of Volga-Dnepr’s Antonov-124 freighters to repair the failed compressor.
