Volga-Dnepr in LNG project flights

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has performed two flights from Novy Urengoy to Sabetta in Russia delivering 130 tonnes of industrial equipment for ‘Yamal-LNG’, one of the world’s largest gas recovery projects.

Volga-Dnepr transported a 30-tonne high pressure pump and other gas recovery cargo weighing a total of approximately 130 tonnes onboard two An-124-100 flights on behalf of Russian logistics firm AeroTransCargo.

The equipment is being installed at a liquefied natural gas plant being built on the Yamal Peninsula. The flights were carried out "under the most challenging conditions" of the polar region in temperatures of -35° Celsius.

The equipment was delivered to Volga-Dnepr’s An-124-100 from the customer’s warehouse in Novy Urengoy before being loaded into the aircraft using a ramp extension and the freighter’s onboard cranes.

The first flight delivered 70 tonnes of equipment to Sabetta International Airport and a "timely unloading" enabled the ‘Ruslan’ aircraft to return to Novy Urengoy to collect the remaining 60 tonnes of cargo for delivery the next day.
