Tiong Woon Crane, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TWC, has been awarded contracts by Shell Eastern Petroleum Ltd (SEPL) and Shell Chemicals Seraya Ltd (SCSL) to provide mobile cranes and lifting services to the mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) and Seraya plant on Jurong Island, Singapore. Tiong Woon Crane has also been awarded a contract by SEPL to provide “safe and proper lifting and transport services” for Shell’s Bukom plant, which is the largest Shell refinery in the world, in terms of crude distillation capacity.

The five-year contract to provide mobile cranes to SEPL’s MEG plant starts on 1 January, 2010, with the option to extend it for a further five years. The second mobile crane contract is also for a period of five years commencing from the start of 2010.

The third contract starts on 1 October and ends 30 September, 2014, with the option to extend it for a further two years.

Ang Kah Hong, TWC’s chairman and managing director, said TWC is “delighted to be associated with such a strong and reputable name”, such as Shell, and that these deals will help TWC’s heavy lift and haulage division “continue to see the strong organic growth it has been experiencing”.
