Caverton wins Contract for Helicopter services
Caverton Helicopters, a subsidiary of Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc. a fully indigenous company listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange has been awarded a five year logistics support contract by Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), operator of the NNPC/CNL Joint Venture, for provision of aviation services with a two year renewable option. The contract was awarded following an extended competitive tendering process.
According to Caverton, it emerged successful after scaling through both the technical and commercial evaluation ahead of other bidders. Given Chevron’s reputation for very high safety and quality standards, Caverton’ s commitment to safety, quality and continuous improvement contributed in the no small measure to this successful bid.
Under the term, “Caverton will service this contract with 11 Bell manufactured helicopters in line with CNL’s requirement.
“As part of the contract, Caverton will provide guaranteed medevac response to CNL 24 hours a day, seven days a week, covering their entire area of operations.”
Caverton said over the past few decades, it has worked hard to raise the bar in key areas in various specialised sectors such as helicopter availbility, on-time departure, service and maintenance quality while also pursuing a robust local content strategy.
It added that the positive impact of these efforts is the growing confidence in its services by the International Oil Companies and others, resulting in an increasing market share.
“As a fully indigenous player in the hitherto foreign-interest dominated sector, Caverton helicopters has confirmed the mantra that given opportunity, Nigerians can excel and make Nigeria proud in all facets of the economy,” it said.
The Group Chairman, Remi Makanjuola, said: “We are thankful to our clients, the aviation regulator, our shareholders, our staff and many others who have played a role in our development and success as a company. “Special recognition to the Access Bank Group, which have supported Caverton on various projects over the years.
Caverton Helicopters is poised to continue to work on consolidating its vision to be a leading provider of premium aviation services in sub-Saharan Africa to the oil and gas industry.”
