Sparrows Group, the engineering and maintenance services specialist for the international energy and industrial sectors, has announced a 3-year contract award from Serica Energy for crane operations and maintenance services on North Sea platform, Bruce.

The organisation will provide resident focal points, onshore engineering, operations and maintenance services including engineering and technical support on site, refurbishment and repairs, as well as lifting equipment inspection as part of the scope of work.

Sparrows has held the contract with Serica Energy since 2018, but, prior to the change in ownership, worked with BP on the installation for more than two decades. In addition, last year Sparrows was awarded a further scope of work to provide additional maintenance riggers to complement the existing contract which included operators and lifting competent persons (LCPs).

Stewart Mitchell, CEO at Sparrows, says, “We’ve had a positive start to 2022, this contract extension – and additional scope for personnel – really demonstrates the confidence and trust that Serica Energy has in Sparrows and our offering.”

“We’ve been working on the Bruce platform since the late 90s and have a lot of historical knowledge of the asset. We’re delighted to continue our legacy there with renewed crane operation and maintenance services for the coming years,” Mitchell adds.
