Volga-Dnepr brings renewable energy to Australia


Volga-Dnepr Airlines has supported the construction of a 32-turbine renewable energy wind farm in Australia with the delivery of 80 tonnes of energy equipment for General Electric.

The Antonov AN-124-100 allowed the four metre long, 36 tonne wind turbine hub and three 12.6 tonne generators to be positioned inside the aircraft using its own loading system and external crane.

Volga-Dnepr’s in-house professionals expedited the shipment by organising road transport to Cologne Bonn Airport in Germany and then to the constructing place near Hallett in South Australia after its arrival in Adelaide.

Ekaterina Andreeva, deputy commercial director of Volga-Dnepr Airlines says: “Our three-decade knowledge and expertise, ability to move the entire load on a single An-124-100 flight and fast road transport solutions in Germany and Australia helped us to halve the typical end-to-end transit time for a delivery like this.”
