Volga-Dnepr helps oil the wheels of industry in Scotland

May 8 - One of Volga-Dnepr Airlines' new IL-76TD-90VD freighters has delivered 20 tonnes of oil production equipment from Malabo, Equatorial Guinea to Prestwick in Scotland.

The shipment comprised of a coiled tubing frame and power generator and was loaded onto the aircraft using cranes and forklift trucks.

Coiled tubing is a continuous length of steel or composite tubing that is flexible enough to be wound on a large reel for transportation and provides a cost and time-effective solution for well drilling and intervention operations. The technology allows energy companies to achieve a number of advances in oil production operations and reduce the cost of repair and maintenance processes.

The flight was operated for Airnautic France, a leading French charter broker and gsa.

The company's founder and President, Denis Le Baler, said: "This is the first time we have used this new IL-76TD-90VD and we are proud to charter it into Europe."

Airnautic also acts as the GSA for AirBridgeCargo Airlines in France, the scheduled cargo airline owned by Volga-Dnepr Group and Russia's largest international cargo carrier.
