NHV said on Thursday that daily flights with the H175 will depart from its base in Aberdeen for a period of five years. NHV will add another brand new H175 to its fleet in Aberdeen.

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.

A Premier spokesperson commented: “We are excited to start this new partnership with NHV to support our UKCS assets for the next five years. We welcome NHV’s ability to deliver safe and efficient helicopter operations in the North Sea and look forward to working closely with them.”

NHV’s base manager Jamie John commented: “We are delighted that Premier Oil have decided to partner with NHV for their North Sea operations. We are looking forward to building a strong partnership with them and are eager to start flying on their behalf later this year. This new contract again allows us to showcase our safe, reliable, and efficient H175 services.”

In related news, NHV earlier this week said it had taken delivery of its 12th H175 super-medium twin helicopter and added it to its base in Esbjerg, where the company now operates six helicopters of the same model in support of its clients’ North Sea operations.
