A plane commissioned by Symbion Power to fly equipment into Iraq. The company plans to do the same for its first hydro power project in the DRC.

Symbion Power CEO Paul Hinks plans to use air freight to overcome logistical challenges and get his company’s hydro-power projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) off the ground.

From the start of 2024, flights will be used to transport turbines from the US to the DRC for an initial project because it’s faster than shipping, Hinks tells The Africa Report.
