Helicopter operator Bristow has secured a three-year contract extension to transport workers offshore in the Southern North Sea.
The deal with operator Perenco includes seven-day-a-week coverage from its base in Norwich until December 2021.
Bristow did not disclose the value of the contract extension.
To meet the week-long demand, Bristow will use five Leonardo AW139 aircraft, up from the current three.
AW139 helicopters have 12 seats travels at normal speeds of over 170 miles per hour.
Johnathan Baliff, president and CEO of Bristow Group, said: “This extension is a direct result of Bristow’s continued commitment to safety and excellence in service for our clients. We recognize Perenco placed its trust in Bristow to continue to transport its most precious assets – its people – and we look forward to continuing to deliver on our promise.
“Bristow is bringing new and innovative ways of doing business to provide cost-effective solutions and best-in-class service while continuing our tradition of outstanding safety and performance for our clients worldwide.”
