Volga-Dnepr Airlines moves 100 tons of mining equipment
A self-propelled Bauer BG28 drill used for mining was part of a 100 ton shipment delivered by Volga-Dnepr Airlines to Magadan in Russia.
Loading the mining equipment
The AN-124-100 freighter flight from Moscow was operated on behalf of Stroymechanoservice LLC, which has a proven track record of investment projects and experience in the construction of production facilities and processing plants in severe climates, remote areas and at self-contained construction sites.
Volga-Dnepr’s AN-124 aircraft also carried auxiliary equipment to support the operation and maintenance of the drill and to ensure continuous, uninterrupted performance at the production field.
Representatives from Stroymechanoservice congratulated Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ technical experts and flight crew for their flawless preparation for the movement, including flight planning and operational support.
In December, Volga-Dnepr successfully completed three other AN-124-100 flights for the mining industry when it delivered over 300 tonnes of gold mining equipment from the Czech Republic to Kenya.
