The Thunder Cranes Group has been providing offshore lifting services since 1994 and it’s latest contract is a 3-year project with Chevron Corporation supporting plug and abandonment projects in the Gulf of Thailand for some 3000 wells.

The multi-million dollar contract with Chevron will see Thunder Cranes adding a further 3 brand new TC90XL cranes to its fleet, making Thunder Cranes the
largest operator of offshore rental cranes in the Asia-Pacific region and just one of only four providers of self-lifting offshore cranes globally.

“Apart from Malaysia and Brunei, Thailand has been a focal point for Thunder Cranes since our entry into the market a decade ago and this latest award demonstrates the reputation we have successfully built in the region. In the next 6 to 12 months we will be expanding further and bidding on several major project contracts in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Vietnam and Indonesia” said Chris Poheng, CEO of Thunder Cranes.

According to Poheng, “Providing an extremely niche service can make marketing Thunder Cranes a challenge, but when given the opportunity to
provide solutions and demonstrate our capabilities, clients often find Thunder Cranes invaluable to their projects.”

BECOMING ASIA PACIFIC’S LARGEST FLEET OF SELF-LIFTING OFFSHORE CRANES

According to CEO Chris Poheng, it Thunder Cranes’ combination of unique innovations in its crane technology, as well as it’s experienced, highly-trained
personnel has given the Malaysian based company its edge and ability to grow into Asia Pacific’s largest provider of self-lifting offshore cranes.

“Delivering operational efficiencies for our clients means continuously developing both our crane technology and our human capital”, said Poheng.

The soon to be launched TC90-05XL modular offshore pedestal crane is just the latest innovation from the company and they believe will keep Thunder Cranes
at the forefront of the self-lifting offshore market.

“Our offshore cranes can be rapidly deployed to any offshore location in the world in support of rigless well-intervention services, plug and abandonment projects, or facilities engineering.” In addition, Poheng says, the deployment of portable cranes offshore requires highly trained and experienced staff, “As important as the technology is, the deployment of portable cranes offshore requires highly trained and experienced staff – it is a real skill.”

For Thunder Cranes, growing and developing its employees’ skills is a priority that leads to success.

“To be a global company, our customers should expect the same standards wherever we go.”

Poheng went on to say that Thunder Cranes has had great staff retention over time – a key factor in its excellent safety record,

“Staff retention means experienced, knowledgeable and safer personnel, and ultimately the productivity that our clients appreciate”.
