HeliPPE to supply Vattenfall with PPE in Europe

HeliPPE has secured a three-year rental service agreement with Vattenfall as the PPE-supplier for European offshore wind activities.

HeliPPE will be supplying survival suits, lifejackets, harnesses and other relevant PPE to Vattenfall offshore sites in Denmark, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands and The United Kingdom, with the agreement covering both helicopter and CTV equipment. HeliPPE will also be trusted with the service and support of Vattenfall’s own PPE with the new agreement.   

Mads Enemark Nørgreen, Sales & Business Development Director at HeliPPE, is delighted with the new contract:  

We have been working with Vattenfall in Denmark since 2014 and established a close working relationship, also including The Netherlands in recent years. We are delighted to further build on this and look forward to supporting Vattenfall across Europe in the years to come”, he says. 


Proof of concept  

HeliPPE will service the new agreement from strategically located offices in Denmark, Germany and The United Kingdom and will optimize this established logistics network to deliver on the contract.  

HeliPPE will implement a new online booking system to provide Vattenfall with a

secure PPE ordering and management portal, allowing for an efficient and convenient way to secure equipment at any time.    

Quality in the product, full flexibility in the service provided and fast response times were all key elements for Vattenfall in selecting HeliPPE, and we will do our best to continue to tick all those boxes. We strive to be close to our customers where and when they need our service”, says Mads Enemark Nørgreen.  

Our concept is freeing the customer from the inconvenience related to PPE servicing, warehousing, logistics and so on – and we cannot ask for a better proof of concept than seeing a renewables major such as Vattenfall commit fully to our way of operating”, says Mads Enemark Nørgreen.  


Easy access to fully serviced quality PPE is key to our safety commitment. With the new agreement, we can supply the best safety equipment to our technicians while enjoying the full flexibility and conveniences from a dedicated service provider”, says Kim B. W. Jensen, HSE Specialist at Vattenfall  



Since 2013, HeliPPE has established a reputation as the preferred PPE leasing supplier to the wind industry.  

HeliPPE specialises in making PPE simple, accessible and hassle free for the service operators. HeliPPE supplies all types of PPE to the entire industry: suits, harnesses, lifejackets, helmets and much more.  

HeliPPE is a part of Hansen Protection Group
