ZetAvia delivered a super-heavy oversized cargo to Nigeria, meticulously planning all stages of transportation

On November 16, a 43-tonne generator rotor was successfully transported from Sharjah (UAE) to Port Harcourt (Nigeria) using a set of special loading equipment.

To solve the task of delivering the rotor, in the course of detailed planning that took almost a month, specialists were involved to design and manufacture a special rotor frame, as well as to settle customs clearance of the delivered cargo and its subsequent transportation from Port Harcourt airport to the power plant in Ugelli.

A careful study of the flight plan by the top-class professionals working in the ZetAvia team made it possible to fly from the UAE to Nigeria in just twelve hours with four technical stops. The route of a technically challenging flight was laid from Sharjah International Airport to the King Abdulaziz International Airport Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), then to Khartoum airport (Sudan), then to N'Djamena International Airport (Chad) and then to the final airport of Port Harcourt International Airport (Nigeria). After a successful landing in accordance with the flight schedule and unloading at its destination, the 43-ton generator rotor was transported by ground transport to the Ugelli power plant.

The transportation of a super-heavy oversized rotor from the UAE to Nigeria, which has become one of the most interesting and memorable projects of our airline in recent years, was carried out on an IL-76 aircraft with a carrying capacity of up to 50 tons. The ZetAvia team is ready to provide customers with unique solutions for the transportation of project cargo to anywhere in the world, except for countries under sanctions and embargoes.
