Sparrows Group Wins 3-Year Crane Services Contract from Chrysaor



Chrysaor has awarded Sparrows Group a three-year crane management services contract for the three operating assets it took ownership of from Royal Dutch Shell in November.

The scope of work will see Sparrows operate and maintain seven cranes across the Armada, Everest and Lomond gas platforms located 233 to 250km east of Aberdeen in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

The campaign will be a continuation of the work Sparrows has carried out over the past decade for BG and subsequently Shell on the three installations. This includes the delivery of offshore crane operations and maintenance, including the supply of rigging lofts and inspection services, as well as overseeing the onshore management of all crane maintenance strategies and related engineering scopes.

“We have a long and accomplished history working on these assets, having supported Shell and BG for a number of years. This award is testament to our team’s reputation for delivering results and our safe working practices,” Sparrows Chief Executive Officer, Stewart Mitchell, said in a company statement.

“With our unrivalled knowledge of the existing platform cranes on the Armada, Everest and Lomond platforms, we look forward to supporting Chrysaor on these important Central North Sea developments and delivering all their crane maintenance requirements,” he added.

Chrysaor currently has more than 400 staff working in the UKCS. The operator became the largest independent exploration and production company in the region following the $3 billion deal with Shell earlier this year to acquire the platforms as part of a larger asset package.
