The contract was won through a competitive bidding process and is the first international contract to be applied for and won by the company. Caverton Helicopters is a Nigerian company that started an intra-city helicopter service in Lagos in 2004 but has grown steadily into a dominant player in the oil-and-gas aviation niche market.
Mr. Remi Makanjuola, chairman of Caverton Group said: “This is a major leap for our company and for Nigeria.
“As a company, it furthers our goal of becoming the premier offshore logistics service provider in sub-Saharan Africa. But it also shows increasing confidence in the competence of Nigerian companies and it aligns with the economic diplomacy advocacy of the Federal Government.”
