Erickson secures contracts to build presence in Alaska.


Erickson Incorporated (NASDAQ: EAC) said it has announced two new transport contracts in Alaska.

The first contract with Repsol will provide crew and cargo transport to the North Slope of Alaska. This agreement will guarantee the use of medium lift aircraft to support Repsol's oil and gas operations and provide emergency response services, if needed. This contract extends Erickson's global partnership with Repsol, as they also conduct business together in South America.

The second contract with the US Department of Transportation will continue to provide weekly, year-round helicopter service to people and cargo between Nome, Wales and Little Diomede, Alaska for one year.

The community of Little Diomede is located in the Arctic Circle near the International Date Line, along the shore of a steep mountain in the Bering Sea. The Essential Air Service is often the only lifeline the community has with the Mainland, especially during inclement weather, when traveling by boat or fixed wing aircraft is impossible. Erickson has been providing airlift services to the community of Little Diomede for more than 50 years, and is committed to continue this essential support.

The company has more than 50 years of experience serving Alaska, and specializes in key military contracts, remote locations, and important state-wide initiatives such as the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.

Erickson is a leading global provider of aviation services specializing in government services, manufacturing and mro, and commercial services such as oil and gas, firefighting, HVAC, power line, specialty, construction, and timber harvesting.
