Since the S-92 helicopter is servicing the offshore industry in the North Sea the existing helidecks need to be checked. Conbit is providing the service and will make sure the helideck will obtain necessary approvals of third parties, such as DNV or Lloyds.

Most helidecks in the North Sea are designed to handle the S-61 helicopter. The higher “Maximum Certificated Take-Off Mass” of the S-92 generates different loads during landing and take-off. Platform operators require their helidecks to be able to land the S-92, to increase the efficiency of the helideck.

In the UK and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea the governing parties approved all helidecks, which are designed for the S-61, to be serviced by the S-92 as well. Platform operators provided evidence that the loads on the helideck do not change outside the safety zones. On the Dutch Continental shelve this general approval is not in place at this point in time. This explains the success of the service offered by Conbit. Other contracts for this service are in the pipeline.
