Statoil won’t be flying Super Pumas anytime soon
According to a statement made on the 6th of December, oil company Statoil will not return to operating Airbus Super Puma helicopters even if Norwegian aviation authorities lift their ban. H225 Super Pumas, widely used in the offshore oil industry, were banned in the UK and Norway after a fatal accident that took the lives of 13 workers returning from a Norwegian offshore oil platform exploited by Statoil in April.
Statoil’s statement came right after oil workers unions demanded a permanent ban on the Super Pumas due to concerns about their safety.
The oil company’s representatives have stated that they will continue using a different kind of helicopter – Sikorsky S-92.
