Sparrows wins two five-year contracts with TAQA

UK’s offshore crane services specialist Sparrows Group has been re-awarded two five-year contracts with TAQA for work on the company’s UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) assets.

Sparrows said on Wednesday that the first contract would see Sparrows provide comprehensive crane operations and maintenance services covering all mechanical, HVAC, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, instrumentation, and structural requirements.

The company will also be responsible for inspection, engineering and technical support across all aspects of mechanical handling equipment. This includes crane upgrade projects, structural analysis of crane booms, re-engineering of obsolete components, assembly and modification and improvement schemes.

Sparrows CEO, Stewart Mitchell, said: “Having worked with TAQA for more than six years, we have a great deal of knowledge of the cranes and associated equipment across its assets. We are thrilled to have been re-awarded both contracts and look forward to working closely with the company for a further five years.”

The second contract is for the provision of rigging lofts and fixed lifting inspection services. The project encompasses all related equipment and management, maintenance and equipment testing, inspection support, and technical support services.

Sparrows will also provide guidance to TAQA on maintenance regimes and legislative issues for lifting operations.

The company added that all onshore support for both contracts would be provided by Sparrows’ global headquarters in Aberdeen, UK.

In recent months, Sparrows picked up several contracts with offshore operators. Just this month, oil major BP awarded Sparrows a three-year contract to manage crane operations, maintenance, and deck services off the coast of Angola, while Repsol Sinopec Resources UK awarded the company with a three-year crane management services deal.

Also, Sparrows secured a five-year contract for the provision of crane operations and maintenance on two of Premier Oil’s North Sea assets.

Another recent deal was with Chrysaor for crane management services on three UK North Sea assets it took over from Shell.
