Sparrows Group Secures Multi-Million Dollar Contract with India's ONGC

Sparrows Group, a services company for the energy industry, revealed Tuesday that it has secured a multi-million dollar contract with India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) for the refurbishment of 21 cranes.

The contract, which is expected to be completed by March 2020, will see Sparrows Group extend the life of the cranes for a further 15 to 20 years. More than 100 Sparrows Group employees will be involved in the project, according to a company spokesperson.

“As the original equipment manufacturer for over 100 of the cranes in ONGC’s fleet we look forward to starting this work which will ensure safety and reliability for a number of years to come,” Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer of Sparrows Group, said in a company statement.

“Cranes are a critical piece of equipment to any operation and ONGC’s decision to start this refurbishment program is testament to their ongoing commitment to safety and performance,” he added.

“India continues to be an area of growth for Sparrows and we have established a good track record in the region. We have a strong engineering capability at our base in Mumbai and our ability to carry out the work locally has been crucial to us being awarded this work,” Mitchell continued.
