CHC Group (CHC) has announced a new contract with Siemens Wind Power GmbH to provide helicopter services in support of the construction of the Veja Mate offshore wind farm currently under construction in the German North Sea.
“We are excited to work with Siemens to support this landmark project,” said Mark Abbey, CHC regional director for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “Last year, we celebrated the successful completion of the Gemini windfarm project in October 2016 after providing nine months of support for construction of the new farm offshore North East Holland from Den Helder. We are excited to continue to build on our successful relationship with Siemens, supported by CHC’s decades of experience supporting a range of energy customers, as we continue to evolve and diversify our services and technology to best meet their needs.”
Flights supporting the operation from CHC’s base in Den Helder using AW139s began in the beginning of January 2017.
