Bristow Helicopters last month announced it has inked a multimillion-dollar, five-year contract with a consortium of oil companies in the North Sea. The renewed deal was signed with the Integrated Aviation Consortium, which encompasses six oil companies. Bristow will thus provide helicopter services from Scatsta Airport in the Shetland Islands to the East and West Shetland Basins. Under the agreement, Bristow will fly approximately 6,500 hours annually, via 400 helicopter flights per month.
…and Offers Wind Turbine Service
Bristow Helicopters has launched dedicated commercial packages for the offshore wind farm sector. Offered are personnel transfer, freight transportation, aerial observations, rescue and winch-to-work training. The operator has great hopes for this growing market, as each turbine requires between five and 10 visits per year.
