Volga-Dnepr turns the lights on in Zimbabwe
04 / 10 / 2016
Volga-Dnepr Gulf’s logistics experts have helped generator firm Aggreko to move a power plant to a client in Zimbabwe. Most of the equipment for the project was shipped by sea and road from various hubs around the world, but time-critical switchgear equipment, consisting of nine pieces of up to 4 metres high, was flown from Dubai to Harare.
Aggreko contracted Ruslan International, the An-124 freighter joint venture between Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Antonov, to fly the 79-tonne shipment while Volga-Dnepr Gulf provided ground logistics.
Two 50-tonne cranes loaded the cargo on board the An-124-100 freighter and the Volga-Dnepr team took care of all export documentation, customs clearance, airport terminal cargo handling and airport permits for the cranes.
