Danish Aerotech Would Service Seahawk Helos For The Royal
A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed Monday between Danish
Aerotech A/S and Sikorsky to discuss the possibility of
establishing a maritime helicopter logistic support capability in
Denmark should the Danish Government acquire MH-60R Seahawk
helicopters for the Royal Danish Navy.

“The combined experience of our two companies can bring
the Danish Navy high quality logistics support services to ensure
mission and flight readiness for the 30-year life of the MH-60R
helicopter fleet,” said Sikorsky Aerospace Services Vice
President Frank DiPasquale.
Potential collaboration by the two companies comes as the Danish
Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) continues to
evaluate the MH-60R helicopter for the Danish Navy’s Maritime
Helicopter Replacement Program. DALO is expected to announce its
final selection in 2012. “We see this agreement as a
steppingstone in building up a support capability in Karup that
will benefit our company by creating new jobs for decades.
Collaborating with Sikorsky will offer valuable OEM expertise that
will enhance the development and expansion our business,”
said Jan Jorgensen, CEO of Danish Aerotech.
Sikorsky has delivered more than 100 MH-60R multi-role
helicopters to the U.S. Navy since 2006. The aircrafts’
advanced sensors and communications equipment provide large area
surveillance protecting U.S. Navy ships. The U.S. Navy also employs
the aircraft for anti-surface warfare, search and rescue, tactical
transport, medical evacuation, and ship-to-ship cargo resupply. The
Royal Danish Navy is expected to employ MHRP aircraft to strengthen
its national operations and carry out international commitments for
transport, surveillance, and search and rescue operations with the
United States and other allies.
