Volga-Dnepr Airlines has assisted Oil Spill Response Ltd Subsea Well Intervention Service (SWIS) on the acquisition of a second An-124-100 aircraft transport skid along with L+M AG.
The skid is required for SWIS’ Singapore located capping stack which will further enhance the air freight capabilities of the Subsea Well Intervention Service (SWIS).
Konstantin Vekshin, executive president of Charter Cargo Operation at Volga-Dnepr says: “Using nearly three-decades of experience in finding solutions for unique, heavy and outsized cargo, Volga-Dnepr Airlines engineering team worked closely with OSRL at the start of this project to verify the skid design for the transportation of this capping stack on our fleet of 12 x An-124-100 aircraft and have six sets of heavy loading equipment to enable its safe and secure transportation.
“Engineering work constitutes an important part of our charter organisation and is key to the overall success of outsized cargo related logistics. Based on our experience of working with oil & gas companies, our in-depth knowledge and use of An-124-100, we have enabled multimillion-dollar savings for the oil & gas industry.”
OSRL SWIS director Andy Myers comments: “We are focused and committed to increasing the capabilities of the SWIS service to meet our subscribers subsea source control planning and response requirements. Introducing the additional air freight capability for our Singapore capping stack adds to mobilisation options for our subscribers not just in APAC but enhances our global response coverage bench strength.”
