Case Studies

The following case studies are drawn from Thunder Cranes’ project experience to help you learn more about how our services and products assist our clients.



Lifting Support for PSA Installation on FPSO

Thunder Cranes successfully positioned a TC05 modular crane on FPSO process deck to provide lifting support for a PSA vessel changeout on an FPSO. Our scope included lifting equipment from the process deck to the platform upper deck. The heaviest lift performed was 3,516Kg.

HWU Support in P&A Project

Thunder Cranes provided a modular pedestal crane to support a P&A campaign for Shell, Malaysia. The TC70 assisted with critical lifting needed for E-Line and Slickline activities, christmas tree changeout, HWU rig up, equipment and material handling throughout the project.

E-Line Lifting Solution Offshore

Thunder Cranes provided cost effective lifting support with the TC15 stiff leg crane for a standalone E-Line well intervention activity on an offshore platform in Malaysia.

Flare Tip Replacement Support

Our objective in this project was to provide the lifting solution for a flare tip change out on an offshore platform in Malaysia. Thunder Cranes supplied specialist crew and a customised lifting system. The change out was completed safely, successfully and on schedule within the allocated 6 day shutdown window.

Support For Offshore Pumping

Thunder Cranes recently deployed a modular rental crane (TC15-SL) to assist our client with lifting operations in a pumping project at an offshore platform in Malaysia. The project was safely and successfully completed within a timely manner.

Deck Extension Lifting Support

Thunder Cranes was involved in a recently completed facilities engineering project in the Gulf of Thailand for Mubadala Petroleum. Three extension decks were installed on an offshore platform with lifting support provided by Thunder Cranes’ TC20 stiff leg type modular crane.

Rigless P&A Support

Part of a multi-year, multi-platform plug and abandonment campaign that began in 2019, the following case study is a description of how Thunder Cranes’ TC90 modular crane performs a key role in supporting the offshore activities for both HWU and RPU.

Lifting Solutions On FPSO

The goal of this project in offshore Thailand was the installation of new davit arms for FPSO life-raft upgrades. Thunder Cranes successfully deployed TC05 & TC15 cranes, enabling the upgrades to be completed on schedule and under budget.
