In support of well intervention activities, Thunder Cranes Sdn Bhd has been awarded a three-year contract by PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd. (PCSB), a subsidiary of PETRONAS, for the provision of offshore rental crane services across PCSB assets in Malaysia.

Thunder Cranes will deliver its modular cranes with all associated equipment, including power pack, skidding systems, and highly experienced operating crews. Each Thunder Crane is designed to be versatile, with a number of tie-down options, on-deck placement configurations, and boom-length options allowing Thunder Cranes to adapt to suit different lifting requirements across PCSB’s offshore operations.

“Having successfully provided offshore lifting support for PCSB in Malaysia, we are extremely pleased to be awarded this work to continue supporting PCSB’s well intervention needs until 2023. Our personnel have extensive knowledge of the assets involved and this contract award is testament to Thunder Cranes’ level of high-quality services we have delivered in the past. We look forward to continue implementing the high quality and safety standards we are recognised for across PCSB’s assets,” commented Chris Poheng, Chief Executive Officer at Thunder Cranes.

With a unique self-lifting system, even the largest of the available rental cranes can be deployed in just 2-5 days on offshore platforms where there are no existing cranes with standard mechanical installation requiring no hot work. Across the range, lifting capacity varies from 2-60 tonnes depending on distance from crane, sea conditions and the foundations that the crane is mounted upon.

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

The contract is another step for Thunder Cranes in their 25 year history as the company continues to pursue its two primary goals; adding value to clients’ projects and pushing the boundaries of engineering in offshore lifts.
