Sparrows Group Moves To Angola Facility

By DJ Slater11 June 2020

Engineering and maintenance specialist Sparrows Group, which services the oil and gas, renewables and industrial sectors, has relocated to a new purpose-built facility in Luanda, Angola to support its growing operations in Africa.

The move provides the company with a new workshop, storage yard, training facilities and office to deliver its services in-country. This includes a broad range of turnkey engineering, equipment maintenance and training services.

Located in the Vila Flor area, the 21,528 sq.ft. (2000 m2) complex allows Sparrows to deliver its full suite of training courses. It also includes workshops, which are outfitted to handle the maintenance and testing of hydraulic and electrical components (pumps, motors, gearboxes, cylinders), winches and fabricated assemblies.

“Africa is a strategic growth area for Sparrows and we have seen a surge in demand for local training, equipment maintenance and rental services in recent years,” Stewart Mitchell, Sparrows’ chief executive officer said.
