Bolloré and Volga-Dnepr deliver for spaceport

March 17 - Bolloré Logistics and Volga-Dnepr have transported two telecommunications satellites, built by Thales Alenia Space, from Nice in France, to the Guiana Space Centre, on the northeast coast of South America.

Brazil's SGDC satellite and South Korea's Koreasat 7 telecommunications satellite were transported on board Volga-Dnepr's AN-124-100.

According to Volga-Dnepr, it was the first time it used its lightweight aluminium extension ramps to load and unload satellites. The ramps weigh less and take up less space when stowed in the aircraft, enabling an increased volume and payload for cargo, claims Volga-Dnepr.

Earlier this year, Volga-Dnepr's transported the Telkom 3S satellite, built for the Indonesian operator Telkom Indonesia on behalf of Bolloré and Thales Alenia Space.
