Helicopter operator NHV has celebrated delivery of a new aircraft for its Aberdeen base following some key contract wins.

The firm took to social media on Monday to announce it has taken on its sixth H175 helicopter in the Granite City to support its North Sea operations.

It is the 13th helicopter of that type to join the Belgium-headquartered group and will be based at its hangar in Dyce.

Base manager Jamie John said the aircraft is “fresh from the factory”, arriving due to “a general increase of work and with the view to winning more”.

NHV has already described 2019 as a “defining year” for the company in Aberdeen, having secured the four-flights-per-week contract for the FPF-1 installation with Petrofac in August.

At the time, NHV had five H175s flying out of Aberdeen.

Before that, in April, the firm won a five-year deal with Premier Oil to transport workers to its Catcher, Huntington and Balmoral fields in the Central North Sea.

NHV started operating out of Aberdeen in 2016 and has grown its headcount here by around 300% in that time to 85.

H175’s are a “super-medium” class helicopter, typically carrying 16 passengers.

According to latest figures published last month by Oil and Gas UK, there are 12 such helicopters operating in the sector.

It comes in third place, behind S-92s which dominate the UK North Sea (37) and Leonardo AW139s (20).
