Volga-Dnepr successfully transports 50 t of gas

Logistics provider G&O Solutions chose to partner with Volga-Dnepr Airlines when it needed to transport 50 t of gas equipment for a compressor station from Kazan in Russia to Karshi, Uzbekistan.

The cargo was moved onboard two IL-76TD-90VD freighter flights and included rotor and wheelspace, piping and tanks, pumps, coolers and other supporting equipment. These are being used to increase gas production at the Shurtan compressor station in the biggest gas-condensate field in Uzbekistan.

Mr Ismailov, Manager, G&O Solutions, said: “This is the first time G&O Solutions has worked directly with Volga-Dnepr Airlines. Our shipment of outsize cargo was carried securely and in the shortest timescale and we are very pleased with our joint work. Our two companies have already agreed on future co-operation in projects in Central Asia.”
In 2014, more than 40 companies became new customers of Volga-Dnepr Airlines and contributed 13% of the airline’s air charter sales volume.
