    MYCRANE – the world’s first digital platform for the search and selection of crane contractors – has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PESCO Switzerland AG, Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management company (EPCM) with their Headquarters in Zug.

    A specialist in the energy industry, PESCO is the project management contractor for the gas chemical complex within the world’s largest ethane-rich gas processing complex (EGPC), which is being constructed by JSC RusGasDobycha and PJSC Gazprom in Leningrad region.
     
    EGPC products will include LNG (13 million tons per year), polyethylene (up to 3 million tons per year), liquefied hydrocarbon gases and pentane hexane fraction.
     
    The MoU provides for the two entities – MYCRANE DMCC, registered in Dubai, UAE, and PESCO Switzerland AG – to cooperate in order to: expand their client and partner base, develop common areas of activity, work together on matters of mutual commercial interest and undertake the joint implementation of projects and innovations.
     
    The parties have agreed to the sharing of technical and other information, for the purpose of inviting the other party's participation in such activity.
     
    MYCRANE will also make available its in-house engineering support services, which are offered on a truly independent basis, with solutions for lifting and transportation not restricted to using specific equipment providers or pre-determined methods.
     
    Commenting on the signing of the MoU, MYCRANE founder Andrei Geikalo said: “We are excited to deepen our cooperation with PESCO, which is a global player and a leading name when it comes to the management of projects for the energy industry.
     
    “Our MoU sets the framework for our future cooperation and demonstrates PESCO’s confidence in MYCRANE as a trusted partner. It enhances our relationship and reinforces our commitment to sharing knowledge and innovating together.”
     
    Dorus Everwijn, managing director of PESCO Switzerland AG, commented: “The MYCRANE service is long-overdue. As a leading project management and EPCM services provider active in the oil and gas downstream industry, we welcome the efficiency offered by MYCRANE and appreciate the innovative approach to what was previously a very time-consuming process for all parties.
     
    “The most valuable commodity we have is time – MYCRANE allows us to save time, while simultaneously accessing a multitude of vendors.”
     
    About MYCRANE
     
    The MYCRANE global business-to-business (B2B) platform simplifies the process of crane rental procurement, allowing users to submit details of their lifting requirements in order to receive personalised quotes from a range of registered crane providers. Already operational in Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, MYCRANE has been developed by seasoned industry executive Andrei Geikalo, a former commercial director at heavy lift specialist Mammoet. For the first time, customers of the platform can simply and quickly request a crawler, mobile or tower crane without having to rely on manual processes, such as calling suppliers or making multiple offline requests. The service, operated in countries around the world by a network of local franchisees supported by MYCRANE’s head office team in Dubai, offers cranes with a capacity of between 6 and 750 tonnes. Drawing on the management team’s experience in the industry, the innovative MYCRANE platform has been carefully designed to ensure ease of use, and that the quotes generated are directly comparable. Registration is free for both users and equipment rental companies. Besides the lifting services search, MYCRANE offers a number of other tools for the crane industry, including a Marketplace to advertise used equipment, rigging equipment, spare parts and auxiliaries, plus career vacancies. A news portal allows users to stay up to date with the latest industry developments, while in-house support services such as engineering and legal consultancy are also available. Support services, such as engineering for heavy lift projects, are offered on a truly independent basis, meaning clients are presented with a full range of solutions, service providers from the whole of the market, and the most cost-effective solution. MYCRANE operates on a franchise basis and enquiries are welcomed from entrepreneurs who are interested in operating the service in their home markets.
