On February 2007, the Norwegian Ministry of Justice announced that their option to buy 10 NH90 in the SAR version to replace the aging Sea King MK.43 would be allowed to lapse. Instead, they opened the NAWSARH ( Norwegian All Weather Search and Rescue Helicopter ) competition.

The finalists were the AW.101 and the EC225 while the Sikorsky H-92 Superhawk was eliminated. Other proposals, but not considered, included the V-22 Osprey and the HH-47 Chinook.

The AgustaWestland AW101 was chosen after the acquisition process started in October 2011, with tender documents released in July 2012. On November 2013 was announced as the Winner.

The contract, signed on 19 December 2013, includes 16 new SAR helicopters with an option for a further 6, and ensures that the Sea King will be phased out by the end of 2020
