An engineer with more than a decade’s experience in industrial, commercial, maritime and military aviation high precision heavy lifting has been appointed by global high-pressure hydraulic technology leader Enerpac as its Integrated Solutions Manager for South East Asia.
Maxim Lee will work closely with Enerpac territory managers and distributors throughout SE Asia to provide solutions for heavy and complex lifting, shifting and positioning projects, says Enerpac South East Asia managing director Joseph Wang.
Enerpac South East Asia is headquartered in Singapore and operates through a strong regional network of branches and service centres covering Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Maxim Lee’s experience spans heavy lifting and process automation engineering sales and support across such industries as heavy duty overhead cranes in applications for power generation, steel making, waste-to-energy, heavy manufacturing, pulp and paper, military aviation, container shipping, depots and intermodal terminals.
After commencing his career as a project engineer (aircraft) with the Defence Science and Technology Agency in Singapore, Maxim Lee has worked for one of the world’s leading lifting technology manufacturing and servicing organizations and for a global cargo handling technology organization operating in more than 50 countries. He has also maintained links with military heavy lift aviation as part of his ongoing interest in moving bigger and heavier objects safely by air, sea and overland.
“Maxim Lee’s experience encompasses market leaders in South East Asia’s leading industrial, commercial, materials handling and infrastructure sectors, which are the major markets for IS,” said Joseph Wang. “He has the industry knowledge and experience to offer great value to customers seeking the safest and most cost-efficient ways to handle challenging projects including movement and positioning of huge machinery and plant.”
Maxim Lee recently completed a training program in the usage of Enerpac gantries, skidding systems, strand jack systems, EVO and SyncHoist. This synchronized lifting technology can precisely lift, shift and position massive structures weighing tens of thousands of tonnes.
One of the IS technologies he will be presenting is the SBL1100 compact gantry lift system. The SBL1100 fits within standard containers with folded boom and is used to lift and position heavy loads in applications where traditional cranes will not fit or may not be suitable and where permanent overhead structures for job cranes are not an option, such as hard stand pads on mine sites.
“Enerpac’s diverse technologies – ranging from gantries to huge multi-point synchronous hydraulic lifts - are capable of taking on the most challenging projects in the world, whilst also allowing for custom-made solutions to suit individual customer’s needs,” said Maxim Lee.
