Volga-Dnepr flies high voltage equipment from Mumbai to Vietnam
Volga-Dnepr Airlines operated a charter flight carrying high voltage equipment to be used in the construction of a 450MW solar power plant in Vietnam. An-124-100 took off from Mumbai (India) to Cam Ranh (Vietnam) with 30-tonne shipment.
The charter request was processed in cooperation with Bee Logistics Corporation – a leading regional logistics service provider on behalf of Advanced Information Technologies Corporation (AIT).
Volga-Dnepr had to re-configure the flight route three times due to reconstruction of the runway in Saigon and severe lockdown restrictions in Da Nang. With not a single An-124-100 flight ever been operated to/from Cam Rahn, the carrier’s regional specialists managed to process the whole flight approval procedures smoothly, including immigration issues, to make this flight happen.
"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. Not only the new plant will add much-needed electricity to the whole country’s system, but will also boost the development of renewable energy and lead the way towards more eco-friendly attitude," commented Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines.
