Goodrich deliver boiler power generators to oil plant in Kazakhstan
The Kazakhstan-based company, Goodrich Central Asia, transported about 240 tonnes of cargo, including 6 generators and additional equipment, from United States, to the Khazak city of Atyrau.
The transportation of the six power generation units was urgent, so as to ensure continuous energy production at their client’s oil-producing plant. To achieve this, Goodrich consolidated the cargo at Baltimore Airport, from where Antonov Airlines flew the cargo to Istanbul Airport in two 124-100M aircrafts. Because Antonov Airlines does not fly to Kazakhstan, the units were then transported via truck, through Georgia. After covering over 2600 kilometres, the cargo arrived at the job site.
Sanju K. Mani, General Manager at Goodrich Central Asia, stated to Project Cargo Network: “Despite the challenge of Antonov Airlines not flying into Kazakhstan, which was the ideal carrier for the cargo’s specifications, our client needed us to design a solution which required the units to be collected from multiple locations across the U.S.A. and delivered to their site in Atyrau within a week. Special thanks to the Goodrich Central Asia team, our business partners in the U.S.A. & Turkey for the handling and customs clearance – as well as our hard working crew for their great cooperation.”
