NHV Group announces contract with PSE Kinsale Energy


NHV Group announced a new contract with PSE Kinsale Energy in support of its decommissioning operations in the Celtic Sea. The transfer flights to the Stena Spey drilling rig, about 30 miles (50 km) off the south coast of Cork, are expected to start in April 2021 for six to eight months.

NHV AS Denmark, NHV’s Danish branch, will be performing the contract.

The agreement facilitates the provision of one dedicated Leonardo AW139 aircraft. “The medium-sized twin-engine AW139 has proven to be very successful and has reliably secured its role in NHV’s fleet and the world of helicopter operations,” said NHV.

Lars Skov, MD for NHV AS and group commercial manager said the team established a fully operational base at Cork in one month.

“The award of this contract demonstrates the importance of our strategy of operating a diverse and modern fleet in our offshore operations,” added Steffen Bay, CEO of NHV Group.

NHV won a contract to provide maintenance for three H145s to the Bundeswehr  [German armed forces]  for training. NHV is the first non-German company to work with the military in this space. The three helicopters are financed by Milestone Aviation.

Earlier this month, NHV announced it had won an 18-month offshore contract with Neptune Energy Aberdeen
