Historical Russian Space Shuttle Transportation – revisited at Europe Break Bulk in Antwerp
Finland’s Procargo Ltd operated the transportation of the Russian Space Shuttle BURAN for the first time 1999, starting from the Zhukovsky airport near Moscow to Gothenburg, Sweden. Silberburn Shipping Group’s Director Nikolay Baranov and Commercial Manager Jonathan Townley (former Seasotra, London) assisted the project with engineering, mobile crane, barging and tug boats. During this first historical transport BURAN passed the Kremlin on the Moscow River and the Russian Canals to St.Petersburg where transit through the Baltic Sea towards Gothenburg, Sweden was arranged. BURAN was carried overseas furtheron to Sydney, Australia for an exhibition.
