Volga-Dnepr moves solar power plant equipment to Vietnam

Volga-Dnepr An-124

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has flown high voltage equipment to be used in the construction of a 450MW solar power plant in Vietnam.
 
One of the airline’s An-124-100 took off from Mumbai, Indi, to Cam Ranh, Vietnam, with the 30-tonne shipment after the charter request was processed in cooperation with Bee Logistics Corporation.

The airline had to re-configure the flight route three times due to reconstruction of the runway in Saigon and severe lockdown restrictions in Da Nang.

It was the first time Cam Rahn has handled an An-124-100 flight.

Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines, said: “Covid-19 affects all the industries, with wind and solar power plant projects being among them.

“While some of them might be delayed or even cancelled across the Asia-Pacific region due to restrictions, the Thun Nam solar power plant is completed on time thanks to well-tuned work of all the stakeholders involved and contribution of our team.”
