Buran OK-GLI should arrive at Rotterdam today

The Buran test shuttle OK-GLI should arrive at Rotterdam today, after a long journey from Bahrain through 2 oceans and many seas. It will be unloaded at the Gevelco terminal in the Botlek


It was carried by boat from Bahrain by the Finnish company Procargo, which already carried it 8 years ago for the Sydney exhibition during the Olympic Games of 2000.
From Rotterdam it will be transported, on Saturday by lighter on the Rhine, all the way to the Speyer museum by the Netherlands company Van Der Wees. This company is specialized into the carrying of big loads and already worked with the museum because they took care of the Concorde and the Boeing 747.
The shuttle will arrive at the Speyer museum in the second week of April.
