Heli-Union takes delivery of two S-76C++ helicopters

Sikorsky Aircraft has announced the delivery of two S-76C++ helicopters to Heli-Union for use in offshore oil missions. The contract for these aircraft was signed in November 2010. With this delivery, Heli-Union now has eight S-76C++ helicopters operating internationally.

“We are proud that Heli-Union continues to grow its fleet with Sikorsky products to support its international operations,” said Joseph Gigantelli, regional sales executive for Europe, Middle East, Turkey and Africa. “We look forward to working with Heli-Union on future opportunities for the Sikorsky S-76 and S-92 platforms.”

Heli-Union, based in Paris, France, conducts helicopter operations for offshore oil transport. It has successfully integrated Sikorsky helicopters into its fleet for more than 30 years.

“Our experience with the S-76C++ helicopter has been a sound one,” said Loïc Binard, deputy managing director for Heli-Union. “These additional aircraft are equipped with the latest navigation systems and offer greater transport capacity, comfort and increased safety. They provide a fine enhancement of our fleet.”
