Martin Bencher Group Newsletter - week 21


Thank You For Visiting Us

This week Martin Bencher has been present at both AWEA Windpower in Houston, USA and at Breakbulk Europe in Bremen, Germany.

It has been two successful exhibitions for us, and we will like to thank all of you who stopped by our booth in both Houston and Bremen. We appreciate that so many of you took the time to see us - it is always a pleasure meeting you out there.

Antonov Project

This week Martin Benchers project department in Aarhus has together with Martin Bencher Airfreight chartered an Antonov AN-124 flight from Scandinavia to Xinjiang Province in the most western part of China.
The shipment consisted of 6 pieces and a total weight of 60 tons with the heaviest unit being 29 tons. All cargo was loaded and delivered on time and with respect of safety for both cargo and personnel. Cargo was part of an ongoing waste-to-energy boiler project.
