Shipway Argentina Complete Air Movement of Radar System to Nigeria

Shipway Argentina, were recently involved in an air freight shipment of two large units from Bariloche, Argentina to Abuja, Nigeria.

The main unit was a radar system with dimensions of 6.10 (L) x 2.44 (W) x 2.59 (H) meters and a weight of 6,500 kilograms, whilst the secondary unit was an operators shelter which featured the same dimensions but a greater weight of 7,650 kilograms.

Both units were moved from their client’s premises to the international airport of San Carlos de Bariloche, due to be loaded into a Hercules C-130 provided by the Argentina Air Force.

The Hercules made three technical stops before reaching the final destination as follows: Iguazu (AR), Natal (BR), Cape Verde (CV) and finally Abuja (Nigeria).
