Sparrows Group said it has been awarded its first contract for the provision of rigging loft maintenance services in Qatar.

The four-year contract includes the provision of services for the refurbishment, repair, load test and recertification of rigging lofts and contents.

Management of the equipment will also include six-monthly rigging loft changeouts, provision of replacement or new equipment and ensuring availability of properly certified equipment as required offshore.

In order to service the work, the company has established a new rigging loft management workshop within its Qatar facility with investment into new machinery and other office equipment. It has also created job opportunities locally as around seven new positions are required within the workshop.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer of Sparrows, said, “This is the first contract of its kind that we are providing in the Middle East region, due to an increase in demand for specialist companies to conduct this work.

“It is a significant award for the business in Qatar and demonstrates our growth in the market. Companies in the region are seeking quality services to ensure compliance and we look forward to delivering this contract.

“The investment into our facility in Qatar will enable us to support other clients in the Middle East with these services as well.”

As part of the contract, Sparrows will maintain an online web portal which provides a register of the equipment status, store certificates and maintenance records, as well as tracking where equipment is onshore and offshore by using RFID tagging.
