Siemens, the global technology powerhouse, is the latest business to utilise the door-to-door expertise of Volga-Dnepr Group’s Engineering & Logistics Centre (ELC) to manage the movement of a 50-ton rotor to Mumbai, India, under the international framework agreement between the two companies.

To plan for the transportation, the ELC team conducted an engineering study to confirm it was technically possible to carry the cargo onboard one of Volga-Dnepr’s An-124-100 freighters. This included assessing and approving the specially-designed transport skid onto which the rotor would be mounted to facilitate the loading and offloading process, and ensure its safe delivery.
The charter flight to India was contracted under the Ruslan International An-124 joint venture.
