The companies plan to integrate aviation services into construction support contracts and operation and maintenance activities, including working with crew-transfer and service-operation vessels and unmanned aerial vehicles.
JFMS director of strategy and business development Martin Dronfield said: “We see the integration of aviation services with crew-transfer vessels and service-operation vessels as a significant key to unlocking wind farm development further offshore.
“NHV is an ideal partner and service provider that is already established in offshore aviation services, with a presence in all of the North Sea’s oil and gas operating regions, and has a fantastic track record of excellence.”
NHV Group chief executive Eric Van Hal said: “The extensive knowledge of JFMS, combined with the broad experience from NHV, allows us to create a fruitful synergy between both of our industries.
“Together, we will be able to offer our clients an all-in service that meets or exceeds the highest international standards for safety and reliability.”
