Sparrows Group has completed its first project for ASRY (Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard) delivering crane condition evaluation services at the multi-service facility in Bahrain.

As part of ASRY’s extensive modernisation programme Sparrows carried out non-intrusive inspection of its 16 rail, crawler and floating cranes throughout April and May this year.

The scope of work involved detailed visual inspection of structural components, wire ropes and hook blocks as well as functional checks on safety limits and calibrations for the rated capacity indicator. Sparrows will now provide ASRY with a report of recommendations.

ASRY was established in 1977 and is the Arabian Gulf’s leading maritime repair and fabrication facility. The facility includes a drydock, two floating docks, 15 repair berths and twin slipways alongside a fabrication area, workshop and service centres.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows, said: “ASRY is a well-known and respected name in the Middle East so we’re delighted to have worked on this project and hope to develop the relationship further.

“Diversification into new industries is a key part of our growth strategy and this work demonstrates how we can seamlessly transfer our expertise and capability to the marine and industrial sectors. The Middle East is an important region for us and having a local presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia enabled us to support ASRY in Bahrain even during these challenging conditions.”

Sparrows has been active in the Middle East for over 25 years and in 2015 the company established a local presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It was granted a commercial registration to operate last year and recently became the first company in the Kingdom to be awarded Approved Service Provider Recognition for crane maintenance and overhaul by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).
