Eurocopter announced the completion of deliveries of four EC135 helicopters to upgrade the helicopter fleet of Finnish emergency medical services provider Skärgårdshavets Helikoptertjänst Ab (SHT).

These new helicopters are replacing three older EC135s operated by SHT, bringing its total inventory to five of these twin-engine helicopters that are flown from bases across the country.

“Our EC135 delivery surge for SHT underscores Eurocopter’s ability to support customers needs through the timely supply of helicopters in meeting their schedules and operational requirements,” said Roman Seidel, the head of the EC135 program at Eurocopter. “With SHTs record of reliability rates already in the 98 percent bracket, the new EC135s will further enhance its high-quality service.”
