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

Lars Skov, Managing Director for NHV AS and Group Commercial Manager commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with Kinsale Energy on this project and feel confident that its offshore workforce will appreciate our passion for safe and reliable operations. I am also proud that within a month’s time, our team has established a fully operational base in Cork. A solid proof of the agility, flexibility and adaptability that have always been present in NHV’s DNA”. “

The award of this contract demonstrates the importance of our strategy of operating a diverse and modern fleet in our offshore operations. We are looking forward to proving our new partner that NHV was the right choice for this unique project”, added Steffen Bay, CEO of NHV Group.
