Sparrows Group has announced the award of its first contract to deliver deck operations services in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) from supermajor BP.

Under an existing agreement, which was renewed in 2015, Sparrows has been providing crane maintenance and operations services to BP in the North Sea for over 45 years.

This new scope of work will see Sparrows’ deck crew fulfil multiple roles including load handler and banksman/slinger to support lifting operations and carry out bulk handling and management of all cargo on the assets. In addition, the crew will undertake helideck and emergency response functions as necessary.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer of Sparrows said: “We have successfully delivered deck operations for over 15 years’ on FPSOs and platforms in African waters, including for BP Angola on the Plutonio and PSVM. This award demonstrates the strong relationship we have with BP globally and our previous experience will be key in executing these first contracts in the UKCS.
