Sparrows Group has secured one contract renewal and two extensions, worth a seven-figure sum, in Angola to support major operators in the deepwater region.
The first award is a three-year renewal to continue with the planned and corrective maintenance of all lifting equipment used on four floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels in the country. This includes the maintenance of all pedestal, gantry, bow and riser cranes on the assets. In addition, Sparrows will undertake mechanical maintenance routines to support the FPSOs’ vessel class certifications.
The additional two six-month contract extensions are for ongoing crane operations and maintenance with separate operators. Sparrows will deliver crane inspection, maintenance, testing and repair services. Both contracts expand long-term operator relationships where Sparrows has been delivering engineering expertise and rigour for more than 30 years.
Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows, said: “In today’s challenging environment, you can’t underestimate the need for responsive partners that continue to provide a reliable and high-quality service to enable efficient ongoing operations. These extensions are a testament to the expertise of our team and the relationships we’ve built in Angola over the past three decades.
“Our history with the operators means we have an in-depth understanding of the equipment and assets involved, the environment they are operating in and have the flexibility to ensure that despite any ongoing lockdown restrictions, we have experienced people in place to ensure work is delivered on schedule and efficiencies are maximised.”
