Initially, under the new four-year agreement, four crew change flights per week will depart from NHV’s base in Aberdeen to the FPF1 floating production facility located in the North Sea using H175 helicopters, NHV said on Thursday.

The H175 aircraft, an Airbus Helicopter’s Super Medium type is specifically designed to meet evolving mission needs in the oil and gas industry.

NHV started operating out of Aberdeen at the beginning of 2016 and announced the opening of a new hangar, apron and passenger handling facilities in October 2016.

NHV’s base manager, Jamie John, commented: “We are delighted that Petrofac has decided to partner with NHV for its North Sea Operations. 2019 has been a defining year for us at NHV Aberdeen.”
