Performed by the crew of a giant Antonov AN-225, the biggest aircraft in the world, Geodis Wilson managed the transportation of two wind turbine blades for customer LM Wind Power. With a length of 42.1 metres, the blades are said to be the longest cargo pieces ever flown by an aircraft. Geodis Wilson’s Industrial Projects division has established a specialist team to handle wind energy logistics, and the record-breaking transportation involved a full turnkey operation including inland transportation from the LM Wind Power manufacturing plant in Tianjin to Tianjin Airport, China; intricate loading onto the AN-225; customs clearance; and supervision of unloading and delivery from the SKS airport in Denmark.
