The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) every year carries out geological fieldwork in different regions of Greenland - primarily during the summer from May to September. The fieldwork often takes place in remote areas, where helicopters are the only practical means of transportation.
Over a period of five years (2010-2014) the need for helicopter assistance for GEUS operations has varied from 157 to 336 hours with an average of 247 hours per year including both full charter and ad hoc operations. GEUS expects a similar level of fieldwork for the years to come.
To ensure the supply of helicopter services for such field activities GEUS wishes to enter two types of framework agreements, one for ad hoc and one for full charter helicopter services, with one or more experienced service providers that can provide GEUS with helicopter services in Greenland for a four-year period.
Reliability of supply of helicopter services and security are both aspects of paramount importance to GEUS when working in Greenland. Whether the work involves ad hoc or full charter helicopter services reliability of the agreed service is essential at all points of operation. Likewise, GEUS puts a strong emphasis on the security of our employees for whom the helicopter is their lifeline in a harsh terrain and climate.
