Taking advantage of the busy oil and gas industry operations centered around Aberdeen, Scotland, Eurocopter will open a new helicopter service center at Kirkhill Commercial Park in Dyce. The facility will provide logistical and technical support in a 10,000-sq-ft warehouse and 5,000-sq-ft office building, as well as EC 255 simulator-based flight training in a 5,360-sq-ft space. Groundbreaking is set for April, and the facility is scheduled to open by December to provide maintenance services for locally operated EC 255 Pumas. “The new state-of-the-art Eurocopter facility in Aberdeen reinforces Eurocopter’s commitment to investing in the UK and to bringing the best technical and logistical support to where our customers need it most,” said Markus Steinke, managing director of Eurocopter UK. He added, “The Eurocopter Puma/Super Puma/EC 255 has proved popular in the UK, both supporting the UK offshore oil and gas industry and in military missions, as a key part of the Royal Air Force helicopter fleet.”
