Thunder Cranes bags Petronas Carigali job to provide offshore crane service

LABUAN, Dec 9 — Thunder Cranes Sdn Bhd has secured a three-year contract from Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) for the provision of offshore rental crane services across the latter’s assets in Malaysia.

Under the contract, Thunder Cranes will deliver its market-leading modular cranes and all associated equipment, including power pack, skidding systems, and highly experienced operating crews.

Its chief executive officer Chris Poheng said the company’s modular cranes is equipped with self-lifting capabilities and are designed to be versatile and adaptable, with a number of tie-down options, on-deck placement configurations, and boom-length options.

This unique versatility has allowed Thunder Cranes to adapt to suit the different lifting requirements across PCSB’s offshore operations, Poheng said.

“Having successfully provided offshore lifting support for PCSB in Malaysia, we are extremely pleased to be awarded this work to continue supporting the group’s well intervention needs until 2023.

“Our employees have extensive knowledge of the assets involved and this contract award is a testament to Thunder Cranes’ level of high-quality services it has delivered in the past…we look forward to continuing to implement high-quality and safety standards we are recognised for across PCSB’s assets,” he told Bernama today.

Operating across the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions and servicing lifting needs in both offshore platform and FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) segments, Thunder Cranes’ lifting solutions are deployed in support of well intervention; plug and abandonment; facilities engineering (including flare-tip removal); and decommissioning activities.

The company has a proven track record of high standards with experience obtained over 25 years in the industry.

“As an ISO 9001:2015 certified company with efficient operating costs and multi-skilled personnel, Thunder Cranes continually strives to improve its services to meet or exceed the customer’s requirements, excel in HSE (health, safety and environmental) performance, and increase equipment uptime for its crane and lifting operations,” Poheng said.
