NHV opens new Aberdeen base with H175s

NHV has opened a new base in Aberdeen and will operate two Airbus H175 helicopters reinforcing the fleet.

Being present in Aberdeen is very important for NHV to enable the company to serve its existing and future customers in one of the most strategic helicopter hubs of the oil & gas industry. The heliport facility is located at the north east corner of Aberdeen Dyce airport with short distances to the runways and a limited taxiing time needed.

In 2014, NHV was the world launching customer of the H175 helicopters in the Netherlands.

In 2015, the company added one AW 139, four H175’s expanding the fleet and four more H175s to be delivered in 2016.

“The opening of our Aberdeen base and the first Aberdeen based contract with Chevron North Sea Limited will start on the 1st of January with two H175’s.”

Eric Van Hal, CEO NHV Group said: “The opening of our Aberdeen base and the first Aberdeen based contract with Chevron North Sea Limited will start on the 1st of January with two H175’s. These are strategically very important achievements which were only possible thanks to the commitment from all our stakeholders, our employees, our customers, our partners and our majority shareholder, Ardian.”

The NHV Aberdeen heliport complex comprises a hangar and offices, a passenger terminal with check in, X-ray, security, safety equipment storage and issue, and safety briefing rooms. The ground floor of the complex there is a general waiting area and on the upper floor a dedicated passenger lounge. Catering facilities are provided by a local supplier.
