Sparrows Group has signed a new five-year contract with a major oil and gas operator to supply crane services for seven of its onshore and offshore facilities in North America.

Under the seven-digit contract, the Sparrows Houston team will provide crane inspection, maintenance, testing and repair services at two onshore facilities and one platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The contract also includes an onshore processing project and three offshore facilities in California. The company will provide services for a wide range of crane types including pedestal, kingpost, mobile, overhead, davit, monorail and gantry cranes.

The project marks another milestone in Sparrows’ long history with the operator, as part of which the company most recently delivered a rental crane to support the operator’s three-year shutdown operation in the Gulf of Mexico.

Stewart Mitchell, CEO of Sparrows, said, “This contract is a testament to the high quality work our seasoned people consistently deliver and the close relationship we have built with this operator in the United States. We have a clear understanding of the needs of the organization and our specialist teams are ideally suited to support the wide variety of reliable crane types and systems. “

Mitchell added, “We have been focused on the US because our robust growth strategy includes the oil and gas market, as well as industrial and renewables. Safety critical devices are critical to the ongoing safe operation of an asset. As the US increases its activities in the energy and industrial sectors, we recognize the importance of maintaining continuous operations. “
