NHIndustries was pleased to attend the Aerospace Forum Sweden 2012, during four days, from 31st May to 3rd June 2012.



The presence of the Swedish Minister of defense, Mrs Karin Enström and the Chief of staff Air Force, Maj Gen Micael Byden has led to closer links between NHI and Sweden.


The demonstrations during the public days have shown the capacities and the agility of the NH90 under a stormy weather.


In the future six months, the Swedish NH90's fleet will be flying intensively and the deliveries will increase significantly, thus bringing the Swedish MOD up to speed much faster.


This event was a success giving the right level of visibility to the NH90 and testing the flavor of the capacity of this modern helicopter.

NORWAY PRE SELECTS THE NH90 FOR FUTURE SAR CAPABILITY  NHIndustries is pleased to announce that Norway has preselected the NH90 helicopter for the ongoing NAWSARH (Norwegian All Weather Search And Rescue Helicopter) competition aiming at replacing Search and Rescue helicopters operated by the RnoAF 330 th Squadron.

NORWAY PRE SELECTS THE NH90 FOR FUTURE SAR CAPABILITY

02/29/2012

NHIndustries is pleased to announce that Norway has preselected the NH90 helicopter for the ongoing NAWSARH (Norwegian All Weather Search And Rescue Helicopter) competition aiming at replacing Search and Rescue helicopters operated by the RnoAF 330 th Squadron.


“We are proud and honored to have been pre selected by the norwegian Ministry of Justice for the NAWSARH competition, we strongly believe the NH90, embedding state of the art technologies is providing the operators the best solution to perform the future Search and Rescue missions in the most demanding conditions” explains Michel Polychroniadis head of NHIndustries.


The NH90 offered to Norway for the NAWSARH competition is the optimal platform for the Norwegian Rescue service since it is able to operate in the harshest weather conditions to perform Search and Rescue, Air Ambulance, Disaster Relief and special operations support missions.

This new generation helicopter will be equipped with state of the art sensors for a good situation awareness in order to quickly locate and rescue people needing immediate assistance.
The wide unobstructed cabin of the NH90 will be fitted with a complete medical care suite in order to take care of injured persons in flight.

The NH90 is particularly suited to operate in the most demanding conditions like those encountered in Norway since it features a full composite corrosion free airframe, redundant flyby wire controls for increased flight safety along with state of the art sensors and communications systems. The critical parts of the helicopter such as the rotor blades, and air intakes are protected in order to operate in icing conditions.

“NHI is commited to provide the Norwegian MoJ with the best helicopter in terms of performance and safety” explains Julien Negrel Business Director of NHI.
The NH90 already had the opportunity to demonstrate its outstanding SAR capabilities in France when the French Navy rescued 19 people aboard the disabled ship TK Bremen off the coast of France’s region of Brittany.


The NH90 is the most successful European helicopter programme ever. Firm orders have been placed by 14 countries including France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greece, Spain and Belgium in Europe, as well as Australia, New Zealand and Oman overseas. The NH90, developed in the TTH utility transport and NFH naval versions, proves the ideal solution to meet requirements from many potential additional customers worldwide for a number of duties. The NH90 programme is managed by NAHEMA (NATO Helicopter Management Agency) representing France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Portugal, and by the NHIndustries industrial consortium comprising AgustaWestland (32%), Eurocopter (62.5%), Fokker (5.5%).
