Posted 24 April 2013 · Add Comment

CHC Helicopter, the world's largest offshore helicopter operator, has revealed improved customer facilities at its North Denes base after a £300,000 investment.

Opened by Simon Gray, CEO of the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR), the refurbishment of the terminal and operations buildings demonstrates CHC’s commitment to improving services for customers and to long-term investment in the location.

Gray said: “CHC Helicopter’s investment in the base is welcomed by the local community and the energy industry alike. We know there’s a growing need for helicopter services in the burgeoning energy industry in our region. Local businesses also benefit from CHC’s presence; the buoyancy of our local economy is very much linked to the base’s operations.

Mark Abbey, CHC regional director for West North Sea (UK, Ireland and Netherlands), said: “By investing in our North Denes location, we’re demonstrating our commitment to the region and to the many customers we serve here. This base is crucial to us as we help our customers go further and do more in the North Sea. The energy sector remains strong and this refurbishment is a key part of our readiness to respond to our customers’ increasing needs for helicopter services in 2013 and beyond.”

Howard Beames, CHC base manager for North Denes said: “We’re really proud of the new facility and the improvements we’ve made for our passengers. North Denes is a busy and growing base for CHC, moving more than 50,000 offshore workers each year with our four new technology AW139 aircraft.”

Carried out by local contractors Sabre Construction, the refurbishment includes an upgraded flight operations building, new office space as well as improved facilities for passengers including a new waiting area, security check-in area and environmentally friendly heating and lighting.
