Helifuel systems to the worlds largest offshore wind farm

Helifuel has been awarded the contract to supply 3 complete helicopter refuelling systems to the worlds largest offshore wind farm.

This wind farm is developed by Dong Energy whom is the market leader in the segment of wind.

We are very proud to be the chosen vendor for this prestige project within offshore wind. The refuelling systems for this project require innovative, trustworthy and efficient solutions. The HSE factors are highly prioritized, says Oddvar Østensvik, VP Sales.

Located off the Yorkshire coast, Hornsea Project One will span a huge area of approximately 407 square kilometres, which is over five times the size of the city of Hull. The offshore wind farm will use 7 megawatt (MW) wind turbines, with each one 190 metres tall – larger than the Gherkin building in London.

 

A customized helicopter refuelling system is delivered to be installed on the Shell Appomattox project.

Helifuel system to Shell Appomattox project

A customized helicopter refuelling system sypplied by Helifuel AS will be installed on the Shell Appomattox project.

The equipment will be installed on the Appomattox platform to be located offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi Canyon Block 437.

The contract was awarded November 2015 and the system was delivered end of 2016. Helifuel was contracted to provide a custom designed helicopter refuelling system including engineering, manufacturing, testing meeting Shell and the latest regulatory requirements.

The contract is of great value to Helifuel both from an economic standpoint and as an endorsement by Shell of Helifuel’s capabilities and qualifications, says Jorunn Håvardsholm CEO in Helifuel.
This contract proves that we are capable of handling large and complex projects for the worlds strongest companies, she continoues.

Helifuel has provided a number of refuelling systems to Shell over the years, most notable a system for the Mars B Olympus platform. The relationship between the two companies has developed with mutual sharing of knowledge and improvements to designs with a focus on achieving the highest standards of safety.

We are very proud to have Shell as a client and to include the Appomatox on our reference list.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Houston – we have a solution!

Helifuel AS are again preparing for the Offshore Technology Conference 2017 in Houston.

Helifuel have been represented with a booth at this show for several years. The US market represent a large and very important share in Helifuels business.

We have delivered several helicopter refuelling systems to the US GOM and to vessels owned by US companies. We believe this trust was gained after spending time locally learning the local requirements and to fully understand the client challenges and requirements in this market, says Jorunn Håvardsholm.

Jorunn Håvardsholm is the CEO of the Norwegian company and will be attending the conference.

The Helifuel refuelling systems are installed on several rigs sourced by large companies as Transocean, Rowan and Noble among others. -We have also supplied highly customized refuelling systems to large fixed platforms for clients such as Shell, BP, Technip, ConocoPhillips, she says. The latest system was shipped from Norway December 2016 to be installed on the Shell Appomattox platform.

This year, the booth which is located at the Norwegian pavilion #4438 will be represented by Sales Manager Fergal Ò Siochrû and CEO Jorunn Håvardsholm.

We welcome clients and partners to stop by either requiring our assistance in relation to helicopter refuelling system operations, or just to have a coffee.

 

 

 

New contract signed

Whilst part of the Helifuel team was present at the ONS 2016 registering new leads, Helifuel AS signed a contract for a new helicopter refuelling system in a different part of the world.

Helifuel AS, as most companies supplying to the oil industry, is affected by the low oil price and reduced activity. The competition is tough and clients are more demanding. We are therefore very proud to be the chosen vendor for this contract.

The helicopter refuelling system we are supplying will be a customized design. The project will start immediatly and shall be finalized during first half of 2017.

We are also very glad to have other projects ongoing for delivery 2016.
