AW189 to support Sakhalin Island oil & gas ops

Posted 21 July 2017 · Add Comment

Leonardo have announced that an AW189 super medium helicopter will be operated by Aviashelf to perform transport operations from Sakhalin Island in Russia supporting the oil & gas industry.

The aircraft will be supplied together with a support and training package with delivery expected in summer 2018.

The AW189 will be equipped with a Full Ice Protection System (FIPS) allowing operations in known icing conditions when some other helicopters would be grounded.

With agreements for more than 150 helicopters including orders and options with customers worldwide, the 8.3/8.6 tonne AgustaWestland AW189 is the most successful commercial helicopter in the ‘super medium’ category.

Developed to meet the growing market demand for a modern multirole helicopter with large capacity and long range capability, the AW189 meets the latest and most stringent certification and safety standards.

The cabin is configured with 16 seats as standard with the option of a high density 19-seat layout.

The AW189 is also fully compliant with the latest requirements of the Oil & Gas producers’ helicopter operations guidelines and uniquely has a 50 minute ‘run-dry’ capable main gear box, exceeding current certification standards, offering safety and reliability for long range operations.

Over 30 aircraft are already in service in Europe, Middle East, Asia and the Americas for transport and public service duties including search and rescue and have logged in excess of 25,000 flight hours.
