Noordzee Helikopters Vlaanderen (NHV) has signed a deal for 10 new Eurocopter EC175 medium helicopters. The deal was announced here yesterday at Heli-Expo. Deliveries will begin this year and continue into 2015. NHV currently operates a fleet that includes 17 Eurocopter Dauphins and one EC145.
NHV was founded in 1997 to provide business-to-business helicopter transport. It also provides services for the Belgian and Dutch Maritime Pilot Service, search-and-rescue missions for the Dutch Ministry of Defense, EMS airlift for various European hospitals and oil and gas sector transportation in Africa, Europe, and South America. The EC175s will be used to support NHK’s long-term oil and gas contracts.
