MARIGNANE (BNS): The Helibras subsidiary will supply and manage all spare parts, stocks and related technical support for the Brazilian armed forces' fleet of 50 EC725 helicopters.

The five-year contract valued at approximately 150 million Brazilian Reais (62 million euros), marks the first such agreement involving all three branches of Brazil's military services.

The contract also covers the 50 EC725s being assembled at Helibras' new manufacturing facility in Itajubá for the Brazilian armed forces.

The first three EC725s delivered to the Brazilian armed forces in December 2010 are now being operated by the country's army, navy and air force.

The EC725 is Eurocopter's latest version of its Super Puma/Cougar helicopter family. The EC725 is designed for multiple missions, including combat SAR (search and rescue), long-range tactical transport, aeromedical transport, logistic support and naval missions.
