Oil company Rosneft to acquire 160 AW189 Helicopters

Following an agreement signed on the 29th Dec 2015, Agusta Westland through HeliVert will be required to assemble and deliver 160 Agusta Westland 189 helicopters to Russian Oil Company Rosneft.
HeliVert who until now have been assembling AW139’s since 2012, is a joint venture between Agusta Westland and Russian Helicopters.  This contract will require HeliVert to deliver the 160 AW189 Helicopters until 2025.
The AW189 helicopter is basically a larger version of the highly successful AW139, which will enable the operator to be more productive, carry larger payloads and fly larger distances.  The AW189 has been optimised for offshore transport and SAR missions.
