According to Statoil, this helicopter type has already been suspended from regular traffic following the crash of an aircraft transporting offshore crew members at Turøy, western Norway, on April 29.
The restriction applies to all use of this helicopter for search, rescue, and medical assignments (SAR).
Statoil uses the H225 in its SAR emergency service from the Oseberg field center and Statfjord B in the North Sea, and at Sola Airport, near Stavanger.
In these areas the company says it is mobilizing required resources to safeguard its emergency preparedness.
