EnerMech scores first crane contract in Malaysia

Engineering services specialist EnerMech has won its first contract for the provision of crane personnel in Malaysia.

EnerMech said that it would provide training services and supply up to 70 offshore crane operators for an undisclosed ‘major’ oil and gas operator on projects located offshore in the South China Sea.

According to the company, the five-year multi-million-pound contract will also see EnerMech deploy a crane simulator to its Kemaman base for the assessment and training of offshore crane operators assigned to the contract.

John Morrison, EnerMech’s international director of mechanical handling services, said: “This is our first long-term mechanical handling services contract award in Malaysia and it is a strategically important breakthrough for EnerMech.”

Amir Nazer Adam, EnerMech’s Malaysia-based senior business development manager, added: “We will create up to 70 positions and by deploying our crane simulator we will ensure our local teams are trained and assessed to international standards.”

Earlier this year, the company won a crane operation and maintenance deal with oil company Total and a contract to work on Shell’s giant Prelude FLNG project.
