NHV has successfully started H175 helicopter operations in Denmark for our customer Maersk Oil, an international oil and gas company with whom we have a long-standing relationship. The contract entails provision of passenger and freight transport services to Maersk Oil installations in the North Sea from Esbjerg.
NHV will provide a dedicated crew, technicians and 2 Airbus H175 and H155 helicopters for the Maersk operations. As the global launching customer of the state-of-the-art H175 model, NHV now has a fleet of 8 aircraft of this type. Since their entry-into-service in December 2014, the rotorcraft have completed more than 3000 flights and accumulated almost 5000 flying hours in the challenging North Sea region and West-Africa.
The H175 is specifically designed to meet evolving mission needs in the oil and gas industry. It also is well tailored for search and rescue in support of such off-shore operations, emergency medical services, public services, VIP and executive transport. NHV Group ultimately will increase its fleet to 16 of these new-generation helicopters.
