KAMOV Heavy lift in South Wales

A KAMOV helicopter flew into UK this week , via Shorham.
It was working on a heavy lift job near Pontypool in South Wales.
Apparently it flew in just for the job, then it flew back home to Switzerland.
Does anyone have any info on the exact location and the type of job it was doing?.

Thank you

As per OP, Kamov, KA32 A12 of HeliSwiss. Saw it in transit. Most impressive.

Ah, I was wondering if that was a contra-rotating heli which flew southbound near MID yesterday. I imagine that it was on its way back to Switzerland.

From a distant, the noise was reminiscent of a Chinook.

Saw it myself on Friday at Shoreham before it departed for it's task at around 1145. Unusual visitor to the UK. Sorry about the poor quality photo!
