NHV started Search and Rescue (SAR) operations in the Netherlands from 2011. At the beginning, NHV performed Night SAR operations from Pistoolhaven in Rotterdam then moved into day and night SAR services from 2014, flying with the Airbus AS365N3 Dauphins from both Pistoolhaven and the Den Helder Airport base.
NHV are very proud of our dedicated SAR team of experienced pilots, hoist operators, rescue swimmers and engineers who have contributed to the safety of the North Sea through this contract. Thank you for your effort, devotion, and strength. We managed to perform more than a 1000 SAR missions for SAR and Medevacs and transported almost 500 patients for further treatment.
An operation of this magnitude wasn’t completed alone, there were many people and partners who were instrumental in the success of these operations. Therefore, we would like to thank those active in the success of NHV’s SAR operations:
