NHV Group, a leading Belgian provider of B2B helicopter services, today announced the sale of its remaining Airbus Helicopters H155 aircraft to HeliGlobe in Denmark. The Danish brokerage company entered into the agreement on behalf of its client Air Greenland. The six aircraft will be delivered over a period of six months starting in the first quarter of next year.
“This phasing-out project is part of NHV’s ongoing fleet rationalisation strategy. Whilst they have always served us well as we have grown our business and developed new markets, the time is right to give them a new purpose. With HeliGlobe we have found the ideal partner to give our H155 fleet a second lifecycle,” said NHV’s fleet manager Frederik Deley.
“The company has been actively managing its fleet by renewing older aircraft with newer technology aircraft, while also reducing the number of fleet types the company operates for oil and gas. Replacing older aircraft with newer technology aircraft provides greater efficiencies, more capabilities and improved reliability for clients, and is central to NHV’s long-term success,” added Thomas Hütsch, COO of the NHV Group.
NHV Group currently operates a standardised fleet of 64 aircraft. The company has recently invested in highly advanced Airbus H175, H145, Leonardo AW169 and AW139 aircraft to support its new contracts.
