This exciting new activity for the region began earlier in 2018 when helicopter operator NHV was awarded the contract for supporting Van Oord’s East Anglia One project, Peterson were then taken in to provide expertise on helicopter terminal management.

Due to the positive mindset and collaboration between NHV, Zeeland Airport, Van Oord, Peterson and all the other stakeholders the first flight was safely executed on April 24th, 2018.

Crew changes to the project vessels are done on a weekly basis meaning people from all over the world are gathered by the Van Oord crewing department at the Peterson Offshore Passenger Terminal. From there the crew are flown with an Airbus H155 helicopter from NHV to one of the project vessels, Bokalift 1 and Olympic Taurus.

Passengers are prepared and checked according to the industry safety standard prior to their flights by local partners Ovet Shipping and Delta Safe Security.

“While NHV’s primary mission is to provide a safe, secure and efficient flight, we also find it important to provide our passengers with a pleasurable experience before and after their flight. In Zeeland Airport and Peterson, we have found strong partners with a similar mind-set. NHV is happy to celebrate this milestone together with them.”, says NHV’s base manager Caspar Westerman.

Zeeland Airport, NHV and Peterson have built a strong partnership that has allowed the passenger terminal to successfully support the East Anglia One project and is ready to continue to support operations, maintenance and new projects in the area, such as the Borsele windfarms.
