Airbus has delivered H215 heavy twin-engine utility helicopter to China’s State Grid General Aviation Company (SGGAC).

The H215 will join the company’s existing fleet of 15 Airbus helicopters, comprised of H125s, an H120 and an H225. This addition will enable SGGAC to perform new missions such as cable repair, cable laying, cargo transportation, and power line pylons constructions in difficult-to-reach areas, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

The helicopter comes equipped with a 4.5-ton cargo sling, hoists, weather radar, and a wire-strike protection system. The configuration features 17 comfortable seats equipped with oxygen jackets for high altitude missions.

The H215 combines advanced avionics and a reliable platform for rugged multi-mission capabilities in harsh environments. Its baseline configuration offers extremely competitive direct operating and maintenance costs. Standard features include Makila 1A1 engines, the latest generation flight management system, and the most modern technologies, which includes a glass cockpit avionics system and the renowned 4-axis autopilot from Airbus Helicopters’ advanced H225.
