Sparrows Group has bagged a five-year contract worth more than £1 million for work in the US.
The firm’s Houston team will carry out crane inspection, maintenance, testing and repair services for seven assets owned by a “major” oil and gas operator.
It covers two onshore facilities and a platform in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as an onshore processing facility project and three offshore assets in California.
Sparrows will deliver services across a wide range of crane types including pedestal, kingpost, mobile, overhead, davit, monorail, and gantry cranes.
Stewart Mitchell, Sparrows CEO, said: “This contract is an indication of the high-quality work our experienced personnel consistently deliver and of the strong relationship we have built with this operator in the US.
“We have a clear understanding of the organisation’s requirements and our specialist teams are ideally suited to support across the variety of reliable crane types and assets involved.”
The Aberdeen-headquartered energy services firm has experienced recent recent success in the US industrial market, including securing service centre status and distributor agreements with key equipment specialists such as Dana Brevini and SKF.
In the last 12 months, Sparrows has delivered several contracts across automotive plants, salt mines and paper mills.
Mitchell added: “The US has been a key focus for us as our robust growth strategy incorporates the oil and gas market as well as industrial and renewables.
“Safety critical equipment is essential to the ongoing safe operation of any asset and as the US begins to ramp up activity across the energy and industrial sectors, we recognise the importance of maintaining continuous operations.”
