HOUSTON – Bristow Group is featuring the newest Sikorsky aircraft, the S-76D helicopter, and the SSP HUB at this year’s OTC in Houston.
Sikorsky recently delivered the first fully configured S-76D helicopter to Bristow. In 2013, the S-76D helicopter achieved FAA certification for offshore oil operations. This certification increases the helicopter’s maximum gross weight to 11,875 pounds and allows up to 12 passengers for operations in the offshore oil configuration.
The SSP Offshore-developed SSP HUB is an offshore logistics base that offers a very stable floating platform with flotel and emergency accommodation capabilities. The purpose of the SSP HUB is to facilitate personnel transport to deeper water platforms.
