Eurocopter will pay Finland 20 million euros ($29 million) to compensate for delays in delivering NH90 helicopters, CEO Lutz Bertling told the news service Thomson Financial. Finland in 2001 ordered 20 Tactical Transport Helicopter (TTH) versions of the NH90 part of a Nordic order for 52, with 17 options. Deliveries were to start in late 2004, but Finland has yet to receive a single NH90. Finland and NHIndustries, the consortium of AgustaWestland, Eurocopter, and Stork Aerospace, have renegotiated the order, with a plan for deliveries now to start next year. Finland had been considering ordering Sikorsky Aircraft H-60 Black Hawks as an alternative to the NH90s. For related news
