UK engineering services specialist EnerMech has won its first contract to provide crane personnel in Malaysia. The company will provide training services and supply up to 70 offshore crane operators for a major oil and gas company on projects located offshore in the South China Sea.
The five-year, multi-million-pound contract will also see EnerMech deploy a crane simulator to its Kemaman base in Malaysia 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.”
