Volga-Dnepr Airlines has organized a charter flight with high voltage equipment onboard to empower construction of a 450MW solar power plant in Vietnam.

An-124-100 took off from Mumbai (India) to Cam Ranh (Vietnam) with 30-tonne shipment after the charter request was processed in cooperation with Bee Logistics Corporation – a leading regional logistics service provider on behalf of Advanced Information Technologies Corporation (AIT).

The company had to re-configure the flight route three times due to reconstruction of the runway in Saigon and severe lockdown restrictions in Da Nang. With not a single An-124-100 flight ever been operated to/from Cam Rahn, the carrier’s regional specialists managed to process the whole flight approval procedures smoothly, including immigration issues, to make this flight happen.

‘Covid-19 affects all the industries, with wind and solar power plant projects being among them. While some of them might be delayed or even cancelled across the Asia-Pacific region due to restrictions, the Thun Nam solar power plant is completed on time thanks to well-tuned work of all the stakeholders involved and contribution of our team. Not only the new plant will add much-needed electricity to the whole country’s system, but will also boost the development of renewable energy and lead the way towards more eco-friendly attitude’, – commented Ekaterina Andreeva, Commercial Director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines.
