New agreement for Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s helicopters in Russia


Russian oil company Rosneft confirms second batch of 20 AW189 within the total order of 160 by 2025. First 10 ordered in 2015. To be assembled in Moscow HeliVert plant with deliveries start by 2018


New agreement for Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s helicopters in Russia


Leonardo, June 17, 2016 - Rome – Leonardo-Finmeccanica, Rostec and Rosneft have announced the signing of an agreement for the future sale of additional twenty AgustaWestland AW189 commercial helicopters to RN-Aircraft, a subsidiary of the oil company Rosneft.

The new helicopters will be used for transportation purposes.

Aircraft deliveries are expected to start in 2018 with three units to be assembled in Italy and seventeen at the HeliVert joint venture’s plant headquartered in Tomilino, Moscow region.

These helicopters will add to the previous order by RN-Aircraft for ten AW189s signed in July 2015. Moreover, as already set out in the framework agreement signed in December 2014 and with the involvement of Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Rostec corporation, Rosneft plans to order further helicopters by 2025, for a total of up to 160 units.

The parties also reached an agreement in 2015 for the progressive restructuring of HeliVert, an originally 50-50 joint venture with Russian Helicopters, which foresaw the participation of Rosneft, worth 30% of the shares. Subsequently, shares in HeliVert have been redistributed as follows: 40% to Leonardo Helicopters, 30% to Russian Helicopters, 30% to Rosneft.

With Rosneft joining HeliVert, Leonardo-Finmeccanica aims at strengthening its industrial collaboration with its Russian partners and its commercial presence, by introducing a new product into the Russian market, which has already proven extremely successful globally.

With agreements for more than 150 helicopters including firm orders, options and framework contracts with customers worldwide, the 8.3/8.6 tonne AgustaWestland AW189 is the most successful commercial helicopter in the new so-called ‘super medium’ category and is able to carry up to 19 passengers.

Developed to respond the growing market demand for a modern multirole helicopter with large capacity and long range capability, the AW189 meets the latest and most stringent certification and safety standards. Nearly 30 aircraft are already in service in Europe, Middle East, Asia and the Americas for transport and public service duties, providing evidence of the high flexibility of the AW189.

Leonardo-Finmeccanica is among the top ten global players in Aerospace, Defence and Security and Italy’s main industrial company. As a single entity from January 2016, organised into business divisions (Helicopters; Aircraft; Aero-structures; Airborne & Space Systems; Land & Naval Defence Electronics; Defence Systems; Security & Information Systems), Leonardo-Finmeccanica operates in the most competitive international markets by leveraging its areas of technology and product leadership. Listed on the Milan Stock Exchange (LDO), at 31 December 2015 Finmeccanica recorded consolidated revenues of 13 billion Euros and has a significant industrial presence in Italy, the UK and the U.S.
