CPC supports Astrakhan State Song and Dance Ensemble’s touring
A bus for national and international tours was handed over by Nikolay Gorban, General Director of Caspian Pipeline Consortium, and Astrakhan Oblast Governor Aleksandr Zhilkinin to the Astrakhan State Song and Dance Ensemble in Astrakhan on 15 March 2018.
This Ensemble is iconic for the region and well-known not only in Russia, but abroad. The Astrakhan State Song and Dance Ensemble is an all-time participant in important events and functions arranged by the government and has had hundreds of tours across Russia and neighboring and far abroad countries.
The Scania Irizar K440EB bus purchased by CPC is in line with all the international standards for international trips and the Ensemble’s expectations. The bus has 60 seats to easily accommodate the traveling Ensemble. It is fitted with a WC, a kitchenette, and an entertainment system. There are lie-flat seats and the artists can have a good rest during night trips. Air conditioning and heating provide more comfort. There is a spacious luggage compartment for musical and stage equipment and outfits.
Caspian Pipeline Consortium has allocated almost RUR 25 million for the purchase of the bus.
