The Greek order for twenty NH90s included a work offset agreement. Now, after more than five years of planning, negotiations, implementation, training and qualifying, Hellenic Aerospace Industry (HAI) has started manufacturing composite parts at its new facility, which Eurocopter helped set up. HAI is using the most cutting-edge equipment: Ultrasound robots and a laserassisted layup machine. Three years after the new facility was officially opened by the Greek prime minister, the first forward and central modules for the NH90, as well as Fenestron parts for the EC135, were delivered to the assembly lines in Donauwörth and Albacete: The quality of the parts was impeccable.
