Airbus : How helicopters are braving the elements to keep our world running during COVID-19

11/24/2020 | 06:37am EST

The contribution helicopters make to the battle against COVID-19 are well-known; they are relied upon to transfer critically ill patients and ease the strain on overstretched medical facilities. But lesser-known contributions are also being made by helicopters to maintain our energy supply and help keep our maritime trade routes functioning efficiently during the pandemic. WIKING Helikopter Service, an offshore helicopter operator, demonstrates the important role operators play in this crucial sector to help keep our world running.

Keeping helicopters flying meant wind farms in the Baltic Sea could continue running as usual, with WIKING ensuring that their maintenance activities could proceed unhindered. 'The helicopter enabled us to transport urgently needed material, such as disinfectants, spare parts and technicians in case of disruptive incidents, to supply platforms and offshore wind turbines,' said Norbert Gwosdek, Accountable Manager and pilot at WIKING Helikopter Service. It was a welcome relief for Europe's energy industry which relies heavily on wind power: almost 20% of its consumed energy is derived from wind. 'With our helicopters and well-trained pilots, we are ensuring the maintenance and supply of more than 500 wind farms, which play an essential role in Europe's energy supply.'

Like many large ports around the world, harbour pilots are transferred to incoming shipping vessels to help them safely navigate the final step of their journey. Traditionally transferred by boat, Wiking saw an increase in the demand for helicopter transfers since the beginning of the crisis. 'This is where the helicopter's speed comes in handy,' said Gwosdek. 'While transport by ship often takes several hours, the helicopter enables us to approach the incoming container ships in a fraction of the time. In addition, we can fly to ships and wind farms with the helicopter even when the waves are higher, thus enabling a safe transfer of the harbour pilots and wind farm technicians, regardless of the weather situation.' This, coupled with new safety measures, has made the journey by helicopter deemed safer.

Helicopters have also proven instrumental when there is a suspected COVID-19 case aboard a shipping vessel or wind farm installation. 'We can quickly equip one of our four H145 helicopters with a partition wall developed by Airbus Helicopters in a service bulletin and our helicopters undergo a special disinfection procedure after each of these operations,' said Gwosdek. 'This enables us to transport suspected COVID-19 cases from incoming and outgoing ships, and wind turbines to the mainland if necessary, while minimizing the risk of our crews being infected.'
