Crane operations & maintenance management

Sparrows Group is the leading provider of comprehensive lifting and operations management for offshore operators

Lifting operations and maintenance managementAs the most trusted name in offshore lifting, we can take on the responsibility of managing and maintaining your cranes as well supplying project management for all lifting activities.

Crane operators are supplied as part of our fully managed contract but we can also supply them on an ad-hoc basis.

Management

Clients with fully managed contracts are provided with a dedicated business manager who manages all aspects of contract. They are supported by a team of contract assigned engineers and our pool of project engineers who can be deployed onto projects for specific activities.

We also manage the project planning process, lifting equipment, and all personnel and equipment logistics.

Crane operators

Our crane operators are the most experienced and highly competent in the offshore industry due to our internationally recognised crane operator standard.

We provide the following crane operators:

  • Dual qualified crane operators and mechanics (crane operator qualified to stage 3 and mechanical, hydraulic, electrical NVQ trade qualified)
  • Competent offshore hydraulic and friction clutch crane operators (to stage 3)
  • Maintenance

Platform cranes are critical to operations so their effective maintenance is essential to maximise operational efficiency.

To support this we provide:

  • Mechanical, hydraulic and electrical technicians
  • NVQ level 3 and OPITO qualified stage 3 riggers
  • LOLER competent staff
  • Rigging loft containers and technicians.

Equipment refurbishment

As part of our fully managed contracts we also refurbish equipment at our extensive global workshop facilities and provide project management for platform crane change outs.

When a crane is changed out, we often supply our clients with one of our modular rental cranes that can be quickly deployed and installed.
