We deal with many offshore helidecks and are a partner to the majority of the world’s leading players in offshore oil and gas operations. Ensuring the correct regulations are being followed on oil rig helidecks is crucial and we have a long track record of support in this area.
We deploy our expertise on fixed platforms, mobile offshore drilling units, drill ships, FPSO assets and tankers, as well as support and survey vessels.
We’re responsible for conducting helideck inspections and issuing certification to all offshore vessels and installations operating in the UK and Norwegian waters, which stands at more than 700 overall. At HCA, we use the criteria in UK CAP437 or Norwegian Civil Aviation Regulations BSL D 5-1 as the basis for our helideck inspections.
We also inspect and certify helidecks on a global basis for clients using nationally recognised criteria. These include CAP437 and the international standard for helidecks as laid out in International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) publication Annex 14 Volume 2.
We also provide thorough competency assessments for offshore helideck crew in the oil and gas industry and offer complementary training. Our Dangerous goods By Air Awareness e-learning course can be utilised by helideck operators across the globe and is well respected within the industry.
