MHE-Demag is proving itself to be a forerunner in the oil and gas industry.
 
Malaysian oil and gas giant Petronas has enlisted the help of MHE-Demag to expand its Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) facility in Bintulu, Sarawak with the construction of new storage and processing plants. For the integrated, world-class complex, which is also one of the world’s largest LNG production facilities in a single location, MHE-Demag has been entrusted to supply an MHE Explosion Proof Slewing Jib with an outreach of 13 meters and a lifting height of 60 meters. The contract was awarded by Toyo Kanetsu Sdn Bhd, the Japanese engineering company overseeing part of the expansion works.
 
MHE-Demag’s outdoor Slewing Jib comes with a unique combination of 6.8-tonne Explosion Proof Electric Hoists and 10-tonne Explosion Proof Manual Chain Blocks. Installed at the roof level of a LNG storage tank, the Slewing Jib will be used for general maintenance and other repair works. The overall Slewing Jib structures are designed to withstand harsh marine conditions. For safer hoist maintenance, a ladder and walkway platforms have also been included.
