Sparrows Group supports ASRY modernisation programme with crane inspections17 June 2020

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.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows, says: “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.”
