Helicopter services for industry have been HELITRANS’ mainstay since the company was established more than 30 years ago.

HELITRAN’s helicopter fleet has been acquired with heavy lifting in mind and our pilots are well trained and have extensive experience in work where high precision is important.

Power Line Services

We have specialized in assignments for the power industry, and have a helicopter fleet that is adapted to this type of service. Norway has a very special combination of topography and weather conditions that place great demands on safe and efficient flying.

Our pilots are constantly training to work in such conditions, whether it is heavy lifting with liquid concrete, constructions and masts, or surveys/inspections. The pilots work quickly and efficiently with great precision and safety. Fast and efficient flying is important to keep costs to a minimum for our customers.

HELITRANS is approved to build and demolish everything from 22 kV to 420 kV lines.

HELITRANS has contingency and framework agreements with power companies throughout Norway.


Power Line Building With Helicopters


HELITRANS is happy to be involved when power lines are to be built, we can also assist contractors with local knowledge such as weather conditions.

Over 30 years, HELITRANS has built up a very good competence in the construction of lines, both in foundations, mast construction and stringing.

HELITRANS also has several needles that are specially made, and a concrete pump that can increase the profitability of the projects.

Power Line Survey With Helicopter

Inspection by helicopter is an effective way to see which parts of the power grid need maintenance.

With a helicopter, we can offer fast, efficient and safe emergency inspection of power lines.

HELITRANS has developed its own software that we use for line inspections and top checks, for which we have very good references!

Extreme weather is an increasing challenge, and HELITRANS can assist with a helicopter quickly if needed! HELITRANS also carries out annual line inspections and top checks.

Power Line Survey With Drone


The use of industrial drones for inspections and top checks completes our range of services in the area. In some situations, drones can be a cost-saving alternative, while in other situations they may be required in areas where helicopters cannot be used.

HELITRANS uses modern, industrial drones made especially for surveillance and industrial purposes that can be equipped with high-quality photo and video cameras with optical zoom or heat-seeking cameras (thermal cameras) to find heat loss or places that generate an abnormal amount of heat.


Mast Building With Helicopter

When the telecommunications network and the mobile network are expanded with masts, these are often set up off the beaten track for the best possible coverage and to tie regions together. Often places without a road, and then using helicopters is a very practical way to lift and hold the heavy masts in place, while technicians on the ground attach them.

Helicopters are important in the development of the 4G and 5G network, and not least must be on standby when something happens or batteries on remote transmitters and communication towers need to be changed.

The Building and Construction Industry


Concrete Transport by Helicopter

Casting in concrete using a helicopter for casting foundations for masts, or formwork for breakwaters, quays, dams is something our pilots are well trained in.

A helicopter is a very effective alternative when road access is difficult, and ensures that the concrete is in place shortly after it comes out of the mixer.

The helicopter flies ready-mixed concrete in concrete tubs from a loading point near the construction site. On short distances, under good conditions, approx. 6 m 3 per hour can be transported . You can also use several tobs for higher efficiency so that you change in place to wait for a refill.

HELITRANS has pilots with the special skills to ensure that the job is carried out cost-effectively and safely.

Film Industry

Overview images from the air provide a unique perspective and larger film productions with self-respect cannot avoid the need. Film productions place great demands on camera equipment, and then equipment from Cineflex with high quality, gyro and remote control is often used, which is large and heavy, and mounted externally on the helicopter. Helitrans has done several such assignments and can help with this.
