Westlink recently chartered the Antonov AN-124 aircraft to deliver a 35-tonne gas compressor system from the USA to Winchelsea in Victoria, Australia.
The large cargo plane was utilised to transport the compressor system under time pressure, travelling a total of 11,000 nautical miles.
This compressor system will be used in the expansion of a compressor station, to enable additional capacity ahead of expected gas supply shortages.
We would like to thank everyone involved in this exciting project; it was a complex but incredibly rewarding challenge.
