Charter airline Volga-Dnepr utilised a Il-76TD-90VD to move liquid oxygen production equipment between China and Russia.

The equipment weighed more than 16 tonnes and was flown from Shanghai to Mineralnye Vody for onward transportation to Nevinnomyssk, where an liquid oxygen production facility is being built for medical use.

Volga-Dnepr said it had been working with the customer to map out possible delivery options, choosing the most appropriate aircraft type, dealing with terminal handling in the airport of origin and organising last-mile delivery from the airport of destination to Nevinnomyssk.

Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director of Volga-Dnepr Airlines, said: “In the case of medical equipment transportation, there is no time to lose. Our structured relations with suppliers and in-depth understanding of each supply chain step allowed us to organize this transportation smoothly and effectively, paying particular attention to 120 km last-mile delivery.”

It is expected that the plant’s first production line will turn out up to 10 tonnes of liquid medical oxygen per day with further plans to upscale to 20 tonnes per day.
