ABERDEEN, UK Sparrows Group has expanded its Americas footprint into Trinidad and Tobago following an agreement to work in cooperation with Miguel Mechanical Services Ltd.

The deal combines local knowledge and expertise with global engineering capability and experience to deliver crane assurance and lifting integrity to the country’s oil and gas industry.

Miguel Mechanical Services will supply local expertise, labor, procurement, and facilities while the Sparrows Group will deliver engineering and technical support as well as training and competency assessment.

The agreement re-establishes Sparrows Group’s connection with Anthony Miguel, the founder of Miguel Mechanical Services. In the 1980s, Sparrows Group was involved in a project to improve crane performance on offshore assets in Trinidad and Tobago. Because of his role within the operator’s lifting activities, Miguel worked in tandem with Sparrows Group engineers to ensure the cranes reached and maintained optimum levels of operation.

Following the project, Anthony founded his own company in 1988 which has grown to become the premier crane maintenance service company in Trinidad and Tobago.

Anthony Miguel, managing director at Miguel Mechanical Services, said: “The partnership with Sparrows Group enables us to provide an all-encompassing crane service that meets the needs of many operators in Trinidad and Tobago. We are working together to provide the most efficient and best possible lifting service available to the energy industry.”
