Engineering services specialist EnerMech has won its first contract to provide crane personnel in Malaysia.
The Aberdeen-based company will provide training services and supply up to 70 offshore crane operators for a major oil and gas operator on projects located offshore in the South China Sea.
The five year multi-million-pound contract will see EnerMech deploy a crane simulator to its Kemaman base for the assessment and training of offshore crane operators assigned to the contract.
EnerMech international director of mechanical handling services, John Morrison, 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: “The upskilling of local staff, speed of mobilisation and our strong track record in cranes and lifting training and engineering services, were integral in securing this contract. We will create up to 70 positions and by deploying our state-of-the-art crane simulator we will ensure our local teams are trained and assessed to international standards.”
Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech employs more than 2500 staff across 40 locations and supplies critical mechanical, electrical and instrumentation services to the energy, power and infrastructure sectors, including cranes and lifting services, valves, hydraulics, electrical and instrumentation, industrial services and process, pipeline and umbilicals services.
