Sparrows cable and pipelay business doubles income

Sparrows Group

Offshore supply firm Sparrows Group has announced that its cable and pipelay solutions division has doubled its revenues.

The firm said the division had benefited from the delivery from three contracts for Orsted’s Hornsea One Offshore Windfarm.

Currently under construction 75 miles off the UK’s Yorkshire coast, Hornsea One is set to be the world’s largest offshore wind farm when fully operational in 2020.

More than 170 turbines are expected to generate clean energy to fuel well over one million homes.

Ewen Kerr, chief technical officer said: “We have experienced an upsurge in business from the renewable sector in the last 12 months and the combination of the three contracts won for Hornsea One, makes this our most significant cable lay project to date.

“One of the contracts marks the first time we have conducted nearshore cable transfer operations and this is a testament to our highly trained engineering teams who worked to develop the most effective solution for our client.”

The work scope saw Sparrows provide equipment and personnel to handle the nearshore, export and inter-array cables for the giant wind project.

A further contract was awarded to Sparrows by DeepOcean to provide a Linear Cable Engine and operators on board the Edda Freya for the inter-array cable installations.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows, added: “As a group we have made significant strides to diversify our business and gain increased market share in the renewable sector in the last year and our CPLS division is no exception to this.

“It’s fantastic to see the business continue to expand and support the growing offshore wind industry and we already have a strong pipeline of renewable work scheduled for 2019.”
