Stavanger, Norway – Heli-One Norway, a leading provider of helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services, is opening a new 3500 square foot stateof-the-art blade repair and overhaul shop at its facility in Stavanger, Norway. This shop has capability to carry out repair and overhaul for Airbus AS332, H225, AS350/355; and Sikorsky S-92 blades. This new expanded space with climate-controlled environments will improve turnaround times on inspection and repair work for customers. The shop is due to be full operation by the end of October.
The new workshop features several specialized environments that will enable teams to run multiple inspection and repair projects simultaneously, resulting in a quicker turnaround time. These environments include a preparation room for inspections, a dedicated paint booth for blade painting, and a clean room for all dust-free operations. The clean room will also be humidity-controlled, allowing work to be performed year-round.
The increased space and new rooms allow technicians to run these inspection and repair projects with a priority on safety and quality. The shop continues to expand its capabilities with the recent addition of Airbus AS350/355 blade service. The team is approved to provide blade service for: AS350/355, AS332 & H225, and Sikorsky S-92 (limited).
