Sparrows Group, the engineering and maintenance specialists for the global energy and industrial sectors, has secured a contract worth approximately £50 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.

Stewart Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer at Sparrows, commented: “This new five-year contract is in addition to the inspection services work which we were awarded by the operator two years’ ago, demonstrating the high-quality service we have delivered to ensure safe and efficient operations.

“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. With more than 45 years’ experience in the region, we have an unrivalled knowledge of the market and demands of the challenging environment on safety-critical lifting equipment in the field.”
