The transportation was implemented with the helicopters. The oversize equipment was delivered from river terminals in the Samara district as an external cargo carried by MI-26, the largest transportation helicopter in the world.

Overall dimensions of deaerators are: length – 10.1 m, width – 3.25 m, height – 7.5 m, mass – 14.5 t. According to estimates of experts, oversize equipment delivery by air turned out to be most feasible both technically and economically, as additional road base fortification, transmission power line and gas pipelines cut-offs, traffic limitations were not needed. At the same time all necessary security measures were taken: the flight route went over river surface.
