INAER Aviation Italia, a provider of offshore transportation, medical emergency and rescue services and fire-fighting, has been awarded a contract for the provision of offshore transportation and medevac services by ENI Cyprus.
The two helicopters will transport passengers engaged in the exploration project in Cyprus onto the ‘Saipem 10000’ drillship which is equipped with a helipad of 27 meters diameter and a capability of 22 tons.
The new service, which started last month, will also include the provision of ground services in cooperation with Skylink Services and a complete new hangar dedicated to the maintenance of the AW 139 local fleet.
“INAER Aviation Italia is proud to start this new challenging project in Cyprus which continues its long-lasting operational relationship with ENI as well as growing its international footprint,” INAER said in a statement.
Eni Cyprus, a subsidiary of Italy’s Eni, last month began drilling operation at the Block 9, on the Onasagoras prospect, hoping to strike natural gas.
