NHV secures offshore contract for Shell UK & NAM


NHV has announced a new long-term contract to provide helicopter services for Shell UK & NAM, starting today (July 1st) in the North Sea. The contract, a three-year agreement, employs NHV to provide daily flights from NHV’s bases in Den Helder, the Netherlands, and Norwich, UK, to the Shell UK and NAM operations dotted around the Southern North Sea (SNS).

“NHV has an excellent track record in delivering safe and reliable offshore helicopter services to oil-and-gas clients around the North Sea,” said Steffen Bay, CEO, NHV Group. “This new win of a long-term contract reflects the passion and hard work of our team. We continue to evolve our services and technology to best meet our customers needs. NHV looks forward to even further growth in order to maintain our significant presence in the area.”

The contract involves the provision of two dedicated Leonardo AW139 aircraft – one in Norwich and one in Den Helder. The medium-sized twin-engine AW139 has proved to be very successful and has reliably secured its role in the fleet and the world of helicopter operations, according to NHV.

Michael Gislam, NHV’s Base Manager in Norwich commented: “We are excited to secure this long-term contract, to work with Shell UK and NAM helping them meet their transportation needs and are all eager to start flying on their behalf. The agreement strengthens our long-standing relationship with Shell where we have previously supported projects in Europe and Africa.”
