HeliService International has ordered another AW169 helicopter for offshore wind farm operations from Leonardo-Finmeccanica.

The contract was signed around month and a half after the first AW169 was delivered to support Siemens’ O&M works on the Dutch Gemini offshore wind farm.

The new aircraft will be delivered in 2017 and will be used for offshore wind farm support missions in the North Sea.

The first AW169 was ordered by HeliService in late 2015 and marked Leonardo’s first customer of the type for this application in Europe, as well as the entry of the new model into the German helicopter market, Leonardo-Finmeccanica said.
