Written by  OE Staff Tuesday, 31 January 2017 12:17

The NHV Group has been awarded a contract with Ithaca Energy UK (Ithaca) to provide helicopter services in support of their upcoming drilling project at the Harrier Well in Block 30/6. The operations are expected to start Q2 2017. Flights will depart from NHV’s base in Aberdeen to the Harrier Well, which is approximately 150nm from Aberdeen.

NHV will support this project utilizing the H175 aircraft, an Airbus Helicopter’s Super Medium type, which is specifically designed to meet evolving mission needs in the oil and gas industry. 

Operations out of Aberdeen by NHV started at the beginning of 2016 and the opening of a new hangar, apron and passenger handling facilities was announced last October. A third H175 helicopter will now be allocated to the Aberdeen base. Ultimately, NHV will increase its fleet to 16 of these new-generation helicopters.
