ABERDEEN, Scotland — Sparrows Group, an engineering and maintenance specialist, has secured a contract worth about £50 million ($US60 million) with a major UKCS operator to provide crane management services across its operating assets in the North Sea.
The five-year agreement, which also has two two-year extension options, will see Sparrows deliver crane operations and maintenance services across 10 of the operator’s assets in the region.
Sparrows has held the contract since 2018 and will continue with the provision of operation, maintenance and engineering services to ensure the safety and reliability of 38 cranes. The scope includes development and implementation of planned maintenance routines as well as undertaking planning and risk assessment for all lifting operations.
All onshore support will be carried out from Sparrows’ Aberdeen, Scotland headquarters, including technical and safety audits, and repair and refurbishment work as required.
“This new five-year contract is in addition to the inspection services work, which we were awarded by the operator two years’ ago," Sparrows CEO Stewart Mitchell said. “Although we have been diversifying into the renewables and onshore industrial markets in recent years, the North Sea remains a core area in the business, so we’re pleased to continue working with the operator across these assets."
