Compressor flies with Antonov

October 17 - Antonov Airlines has transported four compressor skids on behalf of Bolloré Logistics China from Calgary, Canada to Mary, Turkmenistan using its fleet of AN-124-100 aircraft.

The consignment included a main skid, which measured 13.75 m x 5.30 m x 4.16 m and weighed 81.5 tonnes, along with a sub skid measuring 7.65 m x 5 m x 2.44 m and weighing 13.9 tonnes, in addition to miscellaneous equipment.

The skids were transported for a Chinese oil and gas engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) company on four separate flights. The cargo was destined for a gas field in Turkmenistan.

According to Paul Bingley, commercial manager at Antonov Airlines, due to the size and weight of the cargo the AN-124's onboard crane system and extension ramps, as well as mobile cranes, were used for the loading and offloading operations.
