WInglift: Powerful enough to move even the power makers

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has successfully transported two power generators to Port Harcourt, Nigeria, with the help of the Winglift transport system that reduces the loading time for large containers to less than 30 minutes. That’s 8 times shorter than without the use of the Winglift to onboard cargo. The shipment of a 19 ton gas-powered standby generator and a 17.6 ton diesel generator on behalf of GEODIS Industrial Projects UK was moved from Châlons Vatry Airport in northeastern France to West Africa onboard one of the airline’s IL-76TD-90VD freighters. Each generator was housed inside containers measuring 920 x 260 x 290 cm.
