NHV Group was awarded a new long-term contract with Spirit Energy to provide passenger transfer services in support of its East Irish Sea operations. The operations are foreseen to start in December 2020 and will depart from Blackpool, UK.

NHV’s team will fly a twin-turbine Leonardo AW169 helicopter to support the service. The company notes its experience with the helicopter type from activities in Norway, where it has operated the AW169 in support of Norwegian Coastal Agency operations since 2017.

“We are honoured to be chosen aviation partner for Spirit’s East Irish Sea Operations. NHV continues to invest in fleet and training to take on unique projects just like this one,” said Mike Gislam, accountable manager for NHV in the UK. “Our team is eager to deliver flexible and customer-friendly but above all safe operations.”
