Chapman Freeborn and Volga-Dnepr Deliver Urgent Outsize Part to Keep Oil Facility Open

Chapman Freeborn

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and Volga-Dnepr Airlines have helped to keep a key oil facility open by delivering a time-critical outsize part from Switzerland to Brazil.

A 28t rotor was flown from Zurich (ZRH) to Salvador (SSA) on a Volga-Dnepr Ilyushin-76TD-90VD freighter aircraft, chartered by Chapman Freeborn on behalf of an oil and gas industry client.

With the plant facing closure until the replacement part could be delivered, specialists at Chapman Freeborn’s São Paulo office coordinated the time-critical operation which required special exemptions to allow for customs clearance during the weekend.

Assisted by Chapman Freeborn colleagues in Europe and Volga-Dnepr’s professional loadmasters, the outsize equipment was carefully loaded into the aircraft using a 100t crane hired in for the project.

Maria Faria, country manager at Chapman Freeborn Brazil, said: "Our charter team was working on an extremely tight timescale and we’re delighted to have successfully executed the operation for our client. I would also like to thank Volga-Dnepr for its support in making the timely delivery possible."

"Thanks to our exceptional teamplay we managed to resolve another challenge for the benefit of one of our key and longstanding customers," commented Alexander Kartashov, Key Account Executive, Volga-Dnepr Airlines.

"As the ad-hoc transportation expert, Volga-Dnepr provided the tailored solution to satisfy the customer’s needs: we promptly made flight arrangements, performed single-piece cargo loading and unloading using our specially designed in-house tooling."
