The Netherlands Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Association has chosen operator Noordzee Helicopters Vlaanderen (NHV) for search-and-rescue (SAR) services. The contract took effect January 1 and has a minimum duration of six months. NHV will operate from Den Helder Airport with two Airbus Helicopters AS365N Dauphins. The supplemental availability of AS365Ns from the Botlek area means that in emergencies at least three helicopters can be operational simultaneously, providing the capacity to rescue crews operating in the Dutch continental shelf area. The previous contract with Bristow ended on January 1.
