Large-sized equipment weighing over 60 tons has been delivered from Philadelphia to Bratsk by the world’s largest cargo plane
The process of loading equipment onto the plane took almost a whole day. On the runway, a compressor was loaded with a special crane through the tail section, and the PSA unit was loaded through the "nose" of the aircraft. The total weight of the cargo was about 60 tons.
The cargo plane left Philadelphia airport on October 21, and safely landed at the Bratsk airport in Irkutsk region, Russia sixteen hours later. During the flight to Bratsk, the plane had to make a refueling stop in Reykjavik, Iceland.
After landing in Irkutsk, the equipment was transported by road to Ust-Kut, and then to the Yaraktinsky field of the Irkutsk Oil Company.
The logistics of the operation were achieved in accordance with the timing and schedule that was originally planned.
Transportation by aircraft was chosen for two reasons: firstly, due to the fact that the equipment should not be exposed to low temperatures, and, secondly, because of the efficiency of delivery by plane.
