Century for EC225 helicopter
Eurocopter delivers 100th built EC225 to Bristow Group
Eurocopter marked the 100th delivery of an EC225 which was handed over to the Bristow group, a leading provider of helicopter services to the offshore energy industry worldwide. The landmark EC225 was supplied in the oil and gas
configuration, but it can be used by Bristow in other missions due to the
multi-role helicopter’s designed-in operational flexibility.
Marking the successful association of Eurocopter and this valued customer,
today’s EC225 delivery ceremony was held at the helicopter manufacturer’s
Marignane, France, facility in the presence of Eurocopter president and chief
executive officer Lutz Bertling; Mark Duncan, Bristow’s senior vice president –
commercial; and Bristow’s chief financial officer, Jonathan Baliff; who were
joined by Wolfgang Schoder, Eurocopter’s executive vice president for Programs.
100th EC225 delivery is a historic moment, and it is particularly appropriate
that we are marking this milestone with Bristow, which was the EC225’s launch
customer,” Bertling stated. “In addition, this latest delivery of an EC225 to
Bristow underscores the helicopter’s capabilities to meet the most demanding
requirements,” Bertling added.
“We are looking forward to the introduction of our eighteenth EC225 increasing
our capacity to serve the oil and gas market. This aircraft together with the
two delivered in June are already contracted to a customer in Malaysia.” said Duncan.
