Shannon Ireland. April, 2012 // Volartec today announced the successful conclusion of the on-site project at Helitrans AS in Norway. The Volartec three person project team were on site for six weeks at the main Helitrans base at Trondheim. Helitrans have now Alkym Management & Control System for Aircraft Maintenance deployed and have switched off the incumbent maintenance management software.

The modules deployed in this case were Engineering, Planning, Maintenance Control, Reliability, Inventory, Receiving & Shipping, Purchasing & Repair, Sales, Human Resources and the Production Kiosk.

Lasse Andersen, Director Maintenance with Helitrans was able to testify “that the work ethic shown by the team that came was second to none. That is not to say my own people did not work hard on this because for sure we also had to contribute to make this a success. Making the switch is not easy but we were ably shown the best practices to get there. Concepts we needed adopted or changes made were never seen as obstacles. They were taken as improvements and solutions found.”

The next phase will see Helitrans being supported remotely to make the transition as smooth as possible. The Volartec support service is designed to ensure we are prepared to make the first weeks as helpful to the newer customers as possible.  

John Barry, VP Business Development with Volartec greeted the end of this phase of the relationship by highlighting “that switching from one system to another is never easy but we strive to ensure our Project Teams take as much of this burden from the operator as is possible. The benefits in the longer term will far outweigh the short term disruption that occurs in the changeover. We are delighted to hear such high praise of our Project Engineers but will always strive to improve on the customer experience. We must learn from every project and adapt to reach even tighter deadlines if the customer needs them.”


Helitrans AS was established in 1990 as a pure helicopter company with headquarters in Trondheim Airport, Norway. Expanding over time they currently operate and manage a total fleet of 35 aircraft.
