Eurocopter is building a new service and training center to service its North Sea offshore energy clients in Scotland. The new center will be built in the Kirkhill Commerce Park in Dyce. Aberdeen is already a major base for offshore operators including Bristow, Bond Offshore and CHC Helicopter, and a major maintenance center for 59 Super Puma/EC 255 helicopters that collectively fly 85,000 hours annually in support of offshore energy operations in the region. Eurocopter’s new center will sit on 1.2 acres and consist of a 10,000-sq-ft logistics warehouse, 5,000 sq ft of offices and 5,360 sq ft devoted to flight simulators. The new facility is scheduled to be completed in December.
