In October 2015 Heli-Lift Services’ Huey was assigned to assist in the installation of powerful generator equipment necessary to supply the Nevis Range Ski Centre, up on Aonoch Mor near Fort William, with electricity while maintenance work was carried out on the power supply.
As the background image suggests, the generators were very large and heavy. The terrain was difficult for any landed vehicle and the use of the helicopter made the transition fast, safe and very straight forward for the contractors involved.
Working from the car park at the foot of the range for fuelling, drop off and collection meant the generators could be manoeuvred over the greater distance by road. Leaving the Heli-Lift Services’ Huey and pilot to complete the final, most logistically challenging phase, safely and effectively.
