Ruslan International demonstrated its unfailing capability in heavy and outsize air cargo last month, with the airlift of a 70 ton piece of oil and gas equipment to Iraq, which was negotiated and overseen by its US representative in Houston, Volga-Dnepr Unique Air Cargo (VDUAC).
Ruslan International, in conjunction with Volga-Dnepr Engineering Logistics Centre, transported an oil refinery stripping tower from Bakersfield, California to Erbil, Iraq. This is an operation that many believed simply was not possible due the sheer length of the cargo and the fact that it needed to be transported in one single piece. The lift, performed by one of Ruslan International’s 17-strong fleet of AN-124-100 aircraft, was the culmination of more than a month of meticulous planning, drawing on more than 25 years of expertise in logistics, engineering and design.
