By
Eurocopter and CHC Helicopter Corporation jointly announced at Heli-Expo that they have entered into a contract for the delivery of 16 new EC225 helicopters. The 16 aircraft are expected to be delivered between late 2008 and late 2012.

CHC plans to put these aircraft into service as part of the company's fleet renewal plan, in support of new offshore oil and gas contracts, and potentially as SAR aircraft. CHC is making this commitment to meet the unprecedented demand from its various customers including both the offshore oil and gas industry and government- sponsored SAR. 

This new 16-helicopter order will supplement the six EC225 aircraft CHC already has on order. The original six aircraft, which are expected to be delivered by December 2008, will support contracts with TOTAL E&P UK PLC, TOTAL E&P Norge AS as well as other customers in the North Sea and elsewhere.  The EC225 fleet will be fully supported by CHC subsidiary HeliOne, which will provide total MRO support for the advanced EC225.

Heli-One has been granted an exclusive licence to perform repair and overhaul on EC225 components.
