Thunder Cranes enables clients to make routine work more efficient, in this case by applying new methods to the challenge of installing compressor modules on platforms in the Gulf of Thailand. 

Case Summary

Compressor installations and swap outs on platforms in the Gulf of Thailand had previously been routine, safe and dependable. But also time consuming and inefficient due to the lifting and installation of over 30 component parts of compressors piece-by-piece on the platform. Therefore assembling the compressors parts on the platforms led to large amounts of human capital tied up for weeks on end.


We were able to help shorten the installation time so that commissioning was wrapped up in half the time it would have taken to assemble the compressors alone.


The lifting solution we proposed enabled our client to consolidate 30+ individual lifts into not more than 4 total lifts. As a result our client saw a much safer and efficient process and felt the cost savings immediately. Since the first compressor package installation back in 2008, our client hasn’t looked back, and we haven’t either.
