Antonov Airlines keeps the home fires burning in Germany


Antonov Airlines and German forwarder Rolf Riedl moved a power supply skid for an LNG terminal from Tekirdag, Turkey to Hamburg, Germany on one of its AN-124-100-150 aircraft – the biggest single piece transported by the Ukraine-owned carrier in 2022.

To load and unload the 19m long, 4.24m wide and 4m high unit Antonov used a special loading ramp, in conjunction with external cranes.

The carrier’s commercial executive, Volodymyr Goncharov, said: “A floating LNG terminal was scheduled to go into operation in Elbe port at the beginning of 2023 to ensure uninterrupted gas supply to Germany so that German households are warm and cozy. We are grateful to Rolf Riedl for entrusting with the important task of transporting the equipment and look forward to continuing to provide excellent service in the future.”
