Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) has contracted NHV Group to provide helicopter services to support its construction work on the 588MW Beatrice offshore wind farm in the Outer Moray Firth.

Flights are expected to start in the second quarter of 2017 departing from NHV’s base in Aberdeen for about 18 months.

NHV will deploy its H175 Airbus super medium type helicopter, of which the company plans to increase its fleet to 16.

NHV base manager Jamie John said: “We are very happy to announce the strengthening of our long standing partnership with Seaway Heavy Lifting and support them in the construction of the new Beatrice Offshore wind farm project.”
