MAMMOET IS BUILDING THE WORLD’S LARGEST ELECTRIC CRANE Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/mammoet-is-building-the-worlds-largest-electric-crane-10798699/ Mammoet’s new SK6000 is a 6000t capacity ring crane designed to provide ultra-heavy lift capacity to serve growing energy markets. The first parts of the new 6,000 tonne ring crane will soon be delivered to Mammoet’s engineering centre in The Netherlands. In the months ahead, fabrication and production will continue as it is being readied for its very first project, with delivery scheduled in 2024. Once running it will be the world’s highest capacity land-based crane, says Mammoet, and can be fully operated using electric power, allowing clients to execute projects in a sustainable way. Mammoet claims the introduction of this 6,000t ring crane sets a new standard in worldwide heavy lifting capacity and allows customers to construct heavier and larger components than ever before. The new ring crane, named SK6000, shares the same engineering DNA as its predecessor, the SK350. By employing similar design principles and lifting techniques Mammoet believes it will provide customers with continuity and peace of mind as much of the crane’s technology has been working successfully – and safely – on project sites around the globe for many years. Like earlier models, the SK6000 is containerised, enabling swift mobilisation and on-site assembly, providing ultra-heavy lift capacity wherever it is needed. It has been designed with next generation offshore wind farms in mind and will serve all global energy markets where additional lifting capacity is needed - both onshore and at sea. As offshore wind components grow in scale and in weight, more lift capacity is needed, says Mammoet. It believes its latest ring crane will enable customers to integrate higher and bigger turbines, and launch heavier foundations, be they fixed or floating. The crane will also work in the conventional energy sector where Mammoet says it will reduce integration time by enabling even larger topside modules to be built or reduce refinery downtime by removing and installing larger components with minimum disruption. #Mammoet #ElectricPower SK6000 #CranesTodayMagazine

MAMMOET INSTALLS FIRST RED SEA MODULAR VILLAS Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/mammoet-installs-first-red-sea-modular-villas-10625146/ A Demag crawler crane on a modified barge delivers modular villas for Red Sea showcase resort Netherlands-headquartered international heavy lift and transport specialist Mammoet has delivered the first batch of modularly constructed villas for the Sheybarah Island resort, Saudi Arabia. The resort is being built by Saudi-based developer Red Sea Global; once complete it will comprise 73 overwater and beach villas and the resort aims to showcase sustainability. Mammoet won the contract to transport and install the villa pods in May 2022. The first batch comprised four villas which needed to be shipped from the UAE to Saudi Arabia. For this Mammoet teamed up with logistics and marine solutions provider P&O Maritime Logistics. For the installation itself Mammoet used its 650t capacity Demag CC3800 crawler crane positioned on its ALE 250modified barge. The shallow draft of the barge meant that there was minimal disturbance to the marine environment. At the construction jetty the crane loaded and placed the first orb on the barge deck and sailed to the installation area. Once at the location, the barge was positioned using a GPS system and the barge’s winches for precise alignment with the foundation. The barge was then stabilised using a retrofitted 300t spud jacking system provided by Combifloat – Mammoet’s partner for floating and self-elevating marine equipment suitable for nearshore operations. Safe and efficient lifting, lowering and (re)positioning of the barge was achieved through a locally controlled jacking mechanism and a four-point mooring system, explains Mammoet. For lifting the modular villa into position the CC3800’s Superlift system has been replaced by a system designed specifically for the project where the back mast of the CC3800 is ‘tied back’ to the barge. This gives the crane enough capacity to place the orb onto the foundation without requiring the additional mass of a Superlift tray, says Mammoet. Robert van Tinteren, lead project engineer for Mammoet, comments, “Creative engineering at its best. It has been an exciting nine months building up to this point, but it never gets tedious to see the incredible things we at Mammoet can do when we put our minds to it!” #Mammoet #Demag #CrawlerCrane #SheybarahIslandResort #RedSeaGlobal #CranesTodayMagazine

MAMMOET STRENGTHENS POSITION IN BRAZILIAN WIND MARKET Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/mammoet-strengthens-position-in-brazilian-wind-market-10527079/ Mammoet, the world’s largest engineered heavy lifting and transport service provider, introduced a Tadano CC 38.650 crawler crane to its fleet in Brazil in the third quarter of 2022. The new crane will be used specifically for concrete wind tower erection, with boom lengths ranging from 105 to 129m (344 – 423ft.). This addition will strengthen Mammoet’s position in the local wind market, which is one of the fastest growing in South America thanks to government investment. The new generation of wind turbines now debuting in Brazil is getting larger and heavier, says Mammoet, as developers increase the use of concrete sections in hybrid towers. These concrete tower sections, which are poured on site, can be two to three times heavier than their steel counterparts. This means crawler cranes are used more frequently for projects with concrete towers, so that the sections can be lifted and tracked across the hardstand into their final installation positions. The increase in component weight also means developers can find themselves choosing from a smaller pool of lifting equipment, as cranes in the 600t-750t capacity range are often already at work in other sectors. The crane is currently on site to complete its first tasks at the Cajuina Wind Farm in Angicos region, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. The Cajuina Wind Farm will be comprised of 55 wind turbine generators (WTGs) which will have a total capacity of 314 Megawatts. #Mammoet #TadanoCC38.650 #Tadano #Brazil #CrawlerCrane #CranesTodayMagazine

20,3000 TONNES MOVED BY SPMT Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/203000-tonnes-moved-by-spmt-10459953/ Double world record for Mammoet in 20,300 tonne FPSO decommissioning job. Heavy lift and specialised transport specialist Mammoet has claimed two specialised transport world records: one for the largest number of axle lines ever used and the other for the heaviest weight carried by SPMT. It was for a job moving a 20,300 tonne FPSO into AF Offshore Decom’s decommissioning and recycling facility where it could be dismantled in a controlled, environmentally responsible manner. A record-breaking 748 axle lines of SPMT and 30 power packs were used. The Curlew FPSO had operated in the North Sea for over 20 years, helping to provide gas supplies to Europe. When it reached the end of its operational life owner Shell sought an environmentally responsible way to dismantle the vessel and reuse as much of its materials as possible. AF Offshore Decom is the main contractor for the Curlew FPSO decommissioning project and Mammoet was the chosen partner for the load-in and set-down operation. This meant that Curlew was transported to AF Offshore Decom’s AF Environmental Base Vats in Norway where this could be carried out in a controlled manner, with over 95% of materials reused. But getting Curlew to the facility required a feat of logistics moving the 235m long, 20,300t FPSO from its semi-submersible vessel onto land. Dorien Frequin, branch manager Norway at Mammoet, explains, “The load-in of Curlew to the decommissioning yard presented some major challenges – not only in terms of its size and scale but also because the nature of its structure meant that it would deflect when moved around, potentially jeopardising the transport operation. It was recognised that specialist expertise would be needed and so we began our involvement with AF Offshore Decom and Cosco Shipping Heavy Transport early in the project to ensure we had the best possible approach in place.” This process was started years before the execution of the project, with detailed planning required not only for the engineering scope but also the operational challenges, too. Ludo Mous, director of operations at Mammoet Europe, explains, “Safety was our first priority and we identified that having a single professional operating all SPMTs would be the best method to use. This meant that risks from miscommunication between operators were removed but required a high level of expertise to ensure all electronics worked together and maintained accuracy – especially as performance of the SPMTs would need to be adapted during the move. We also had to adapt the SPMT technology to work in this way – it is a world first, after all! “There were also 13 other Mammoet professionals placed at specific points around the vessel to monitor progress and communicate with the operator when needed.” Alongside putting in place plans it was critical that rigorous testing was carried out before executing the move. This was first completed onshore where the crew tested the full trailer arrangement, and then again on board with Curlew in situ. This meant that Mammoet came to site several days before the execution date in order to ensure this could be done without impacting the schedule. Special pre-engineered fillings were put between the SPMTs and the FPSO which corrected the deflection of the hull so that the trailers were at the same level to optimise their required stroke. These fillings allowed Mammoet to make fine adjustments to keep the huge structure stable and in the correct shape as well to best accommodate the anticipated deflection of the hull. “As a team and as individuals we have a lot of experience in delivering large scale load-ins, and this background was key to us developing the most effective plan for moving Curlew,” Ludo Mous continues. “But it is always critical to test methodologies in practice wherever possible, and it was particularly important here given such a procedure had never been attempted before. “We needed to test exactly where and how the SPMTs could best support the vessel, observe how this impacted movement in the hull, and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the move went smoothly.” The extensive planning, engineering work and testing paid off, says Mammoet, with Curlew moved on schedule into position for AF Offshore Decom to begin the environmentally responsible dismantling process. Dorien Frequin, branch manager Mammoet Norge AS says, “Moving an entire 20,300t FPSO from a semi-submersible vessel to a yard was an ambitious goal that had never been completed before - but one that was critical in allowing AF Offshore Decom to achieve the most sustainable decommissioning programme possible. “We were proud that Mammoet’s expertise was key to achieving this – both in terms of the engineering knowledge to find a safe methodology, and also the incredible operational skill of our professionals on site in executing it accurately.” #Mammoet #FPSO #SPMT #CranesTodayMagazine

MAMMOET MOVES SWEDEN’S HEAVIEST-EVER LOAD Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/mammoet-moves-swedens-heaviest-ever-load-10423750/ 390 tonne transformer transported across tough terrain. Sweden is looking to increase its renewable wind energy to over 30% of its total power needs by 2024. Not only turbine components but other critical equipment such as transformers will have to be transported through some of the country’s most remote and mountainous terrain. What is expected to become the country’s largest wind power cluster is being developed by energy company Ellevio in the remote Ljusdal municipality. A giant 390 tonne, 750MVA transformer was needed for the project. To reach the site it had to travel over 270km of a highly challenging route. It would also represent the heaviest transport ever to travel on Swedish roads. Mammoet worked closely with freight forwarder Martin Bencher to get the transformer to site on schedule. Strong planning was a crucial first step. Brendan James Daley, Mammoet Sweden’s sales engineer, explains: “The vast majority of roads in Sweden are not typically designed for heavy transport, and so it was crucial to have a full picture of the route from early in the project. We used planning work already undertaken by Martin Bencher and our Route Survey Tool to identify what was needed. “The length of the route was such that a range of quite unusual preparatory work had to be undertaken. Technical assessments of road and bridge strength showed that reinforcements were needed in many places to ensure the weights involved could be withstood. In other places a 400mm depth of road had to be removed under bridges to ensure sufficient headroom. “All of this needed to be coordinated closely to ensure the correct permits and permissions from local authorities and police were in place – not least for the four occasions where the route crossed a railway line.” Mammoet was able to draw on its extensive inventory from across Europe for the equipment required. Power was provided by a standard prime mover supporting two 700hp Trojan trucks, capable of hauling 500 tonnes up a seven percent gradient. The transformer was to be carried using the 400 tonne capacity AL500 girder frame, a design unique to Mammoet, that was developed specifically to allow maximum steering capabilities. This reduced the need for street furniture and obstacles to be removed along the route. The frame sat on two 16-axle trailers, with a further eight axles added under the transformer when crossing some of the smaller bridges to ensure the load was spread appropriately. The journey began at Hitachi Energy’s facility in Ludvika, travelling 125km over two nights to reach the Baltic port of Köping, from where Martin Bencher managed marine transport north to Iggesund. From here, the final 145km route was overland. This was the most challenging section of the project as, not only are the roads smaller in this less developed part of Sweden, but this stretch also contained four rail crossings where there were strict windows during which the load could pass, as well as five bridges where the additional eight axle lines were required. Transport was only permitted to occur at night; this meant an additional six nights were needed to reach the final destination, the wind-farm site at Tovåsen, in the centre of the country, where a second specialist Mammoet team handled the jacking and skidding of the transformer into position onto its foundation. Despite the complexity of this project, thorough planning and close partnership between Mammoet, Martin Bencher, Hitachi Energy and Ellevio meant that the transformer arrived on site as scheduled. #Mammoet #Hitachi #CranesTodayMagazine

VATTENFALL AND MAMMOET COLLABORATE TO DEVELOP NEW WIND FARM CRANES Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/vattenfall-and-mammoet-collaborate-to-develop-new-wind-farm-cranes-10050625/ New climbing crane design offers CO2 savings, minimised community impact, and cost benefits and could bring a step-change in the way windfarms are built, claims Vattenfall. European energy company Vattenfall has said developing ever-smarter ways of constructing its wind farms will be crucial for it to reduce the carbon footprint of its operations towards net zero and to deliver more renewable capacity. It is currently collaborating with Netherlands-headquartered heavy lift and transport specialist Mammoet on the climbing crane concept for onshore wind farms. It believes the new crane design could unlock benefits for both the environment and local communities in the years ahead. The climbing crane concept uses the turbine tower instead of the ground for support as it adds more sections in stages, with no limit on how high it can go. Although it is still on the drawing board, progress to date has been encouraging and a Vattenfall team from its Business Unit Onshore Wind is now working with experts from heavy lifting specialist Mammoet on the next stage of the project with hopes the new technology could be seen on sites within the next few years. For program manager Jelmer Boukes and his team at Vattenfall it would represent one of the biggest step-changes seen in wind farm construction for years, offering multiple benefits in terms of CO2 reduction, minimised impact on local communities and cost benefits. “The climbing crane would be much smaller and easier to get to site, as well as to move to another location when it has completed a turbine,” Boukes says. “And with less civil infrastructure, noise and disruption for the local community would be minimised.” Also, the climbing crane would be able to reach greater heights and operate in locations with up to 80 percent more wind, unlocking new complex and remote wind farm sites. Significant CO2 savings possible The reduction in transport activity around the building site due to the new crane, would reduce the carbon footprint of construction and impact on the local community. There would also be direct benefits in the operation of the crane itself. Due to its much smaller engine and capacity requirement, the crane could be powered by electricity instead of fossil fuels. Eva Julius-Philipp, head of environment and sustainability wind at Vattenfall welcomes the new concept. “In total it is estimated that the new crane could significantly reduce transport and installation emissions during wind farm construction compared to standard methods,” she says. “It will help us take another important step towards Vattenfall’s goal of net zero emissions by 2040 for our operations.” #Vattenfall #Mammoet #WindFarms #CranesTodayMagazine

22ND NOVEMBER 2022 GE RENEWABLE SELECTS MAMMOET UK READ YOUR FREE COPY HERE: https://moveitmagazine.com/2022/11/22/ge-renewable-selects-mammoet-uk/ Teesside-based Mammoet UK has been selected by GE Renewable Energy to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the staging and assembly of turbine components for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm. Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, Equinor and Vårgrønn. Mammoet will employ multiple lifting and transport crews for simultaneous operations to support with the loading of equipment and tower assembly in the marshalling harbor, a key piece in constructing the project. The team will utilize cranes and self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT) axles at Able Seaton Port, the Dogger Bank Wind Farm marshalling harbor. GE will start preparing the marshalling harbor and receiving components at the end of 2022. Nathan Fahey, GE Project Director for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm, said, “We are delighted to announce that we have selected Mammoet UK as our cranes and logistics supplier for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm. The cranes and associated equipment the company will provide and operate for us will be essential to the smooth operation of our marshalling harbor on Teesside, where 277 sets of blades, nacelles and towers of our Haliade-X wind turbines will be erected and transit over the course of the project. We believe Mammoet has the right expertise and equipment to be an excellent partner for us.” Darren Adams, Mammoet’s Group Commercial Officer, said, “Mammoet is delighted to work in close partnership with GE to help build the world’s largest offshore wind farm. The project is a large step towards a net-zero future, delivering a boost for the local economy and wider 2030 and 2050 emissions targets. By utilizing Mammoet’s strong presence in the UK, headquartered from Teesside, backed up by its network of international engineering hubs, we will enable the delivery of clean, cost-efficient energy to around six million homes.” Dogger Bank Wind Farm is located over 130 km off the north-east coast of England and each phase will be able to produce 6TWh of renewable electricity, totaling 18TWh annually, when complete in 2026 – equivalent to powering approximately the equivalent of six million UK homes each year or around 5% of the UK’s electricity demand. Due to its size and scale, the site is being built in three consecutive phases: Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B and Dogger Bank C. “This contract represents not just a win for Mammoet and renewable energy investment but for the people of Teesside,” said UK Managing Director, Mark Sadler. “Securing the project means even greater potential investment and business growth that will expand our existing pool of highly skilled labor with renewables expertise in the region.

Overall, the country is the biggest wind energy producer across Latin America. #Mammoet #CrawlerCrane #Tadano #CC38650 #WindFarm #Brazil #MoveItMagazine

SHURA ISLAND BRIDGE BUILD Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/shura-island-bridge-build-10357890/ Mammoet transports and installs bridge segments to connect luxury Saudi eco resorts. Saudi Arabia is developing its offerings as an aspirational destination. Shura island is being built there. It is a hub of islands housing a series of 11 luxury resorts on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, in the Red Sea. The designs were launched by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince, chairman of The Red Sea Development Company. Designed by British architects Foster + Partners, the development is located on the world's fourth largest barrier reef system and aims to be as eco-friendly as possible. “The first initial reaction was we want to protect the edges,” says Gerard Evenden, head of studio at Foster + Partners. “What we wanted to do was to look at ways of bringing light weight structures and placing those lightweight structures on an island. Just as islands have driftwood arrive and wash up onto the shore, our idea was that these hotels would wash up onto the island and then they could eventually wash away again if that was desired later.” In order to connect the island to the mainland the Shurayrah Bridge has been built as one of the main access points for guests onto the island. Led by the Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), it appointed Archirodon, a marine contracting specialist, to design it. The bridge will stretch a total of 1.2km and will connect the island to the mainland. A precast yard for bridge sections has been established near the coast to minimize travel distances with concrete sourced from on-site batching plants. To handle the transportation and installation of 60 pre-cast bridge-beam and edge-beam segments onto piers Archirodon reached out to Mammoet. Initially, it was looking at installing the bridge sections by SPMTs on a barge with the help of SPMT’s suspension cylinders to lift and then lower the pre-cast segments on the bridge bearings. Having studied the project in more detail, however, Mammoet’s engineering team proposed an alternative installation method by using Mammoet's mobile floating crane concept MTC 15 crane positioned on a barge, thereby creating a 500t capacity containerized floating sheer leg with an outreach of 30m. This installation method was designed to provide significant time savings as it allows the bridge to be built faster by installing one section a day instead of one in two days, and provide more flexibility and accuracy to the operation. According to Mammoet, the MTC 15 comes in standard shipping containers and can be easily shipped to any port, then assembled and erected in a matter of days. Archirodon’s 210-class barge with a suitable deck load was available at the site, this minimized the costs associated with the mobilization of a new barge and reduced the environmental harm by using readily available local resources. The MTC 15 was shipped to the Port of Yanbu, where it was swiftly assembled on the barge and then sailed to the project site in Umluj, where its boom was then raised, ready to lift the 400t bridge sections. At the pre-cast yard Mammoet’s SBL1100 hydraulic gantry, a four-point lifting system, is lifting sections and safely placing them onto SPMTs for the transport to a new temporary jetty. At the jetty, the MTC-15 crane on the barge lifts the segment from the trailers, placing the segment on the bow while on hook and then floats off to the installation area. Once at the location the segment is placed onto bearings on crossheads of piers and the floating crane returns for the next section to repeat the process. “The combination of creative engineering with a flexible innovative equipment enables Mammoet to offer this unique tailor-made solution for the customer that saved significant time. Moreover, the decreased handling time made this method of operation safer and eliminated the need to build an additional temporary infrastructure. Our collaboration with the client optimized the overall project schedule and ultimately kept the customer’s budget,” commented Abdul Rouf, manager sales Mammoet Saudi Arabia. Jacques Stoof, Mammoet's global director market development and innovation said: “We always work closely with the customers to listen and understand their requirements to be able to offer the most efficient solutions. MTC 15 on a barge or a containerized floating sheer leg is a testament to that as it provides a simple yet effective way to lift heavy loads, both inland and in coastal waters and can be perfectly suitable to any civil project, on any local river or a lake.” The MTC 15 has also been constructed by reapplying parts from previous cranes, reducing its environmental footprint. Using sand or water on-site for ballast further reduces environmental impact. #Mammoet #ShuraIsland #Foster+Partners #FloatingCrane #MTC15 #CranesTodayMagazine

ACT HAS FIRST LIEBHERR LTM 1650-8.1 IN SAUDI ARABIA Read or download your free copy here: https://www.cranestodaymagazine.com/news/act-has-first-liebherr-ltm-1500-81-in-saudi-arabia-10357827/ Arabian Consolidated Trading expands fleet with first Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 all terrain in Saudi. Saudi Arabia-based crane rental firm Arabian Consolidated Trading (ACT) has expanded its fleet with the first Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 all terrain crane in the country. The company previously reported positive experiences with its predecessor model, the Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1. "The LTM 1500-8.1 is a proven crane within the ACT Group that has also impressed our customers," says Hassan Mohammed Rashid Al-Naimi, founder and president of ACT. The new LTM 1650-8.1 outperforms its predecessor by 15 to 50 per cent in terms of load capacity – depending on the equipment. "We wanted to have Saudi Arabia's first LTM 1650-8.1,” explains Al-Naimi. “ACT has always been a pioneer and has set standards in the crane business in Saudi Arabia. And we have now done this once again with the new 700-tonne crane." In line with company policy, ACT bought the full equipment package, including two telescopic boom lengths: 54 and 80 metres. To switch between them only the corresponding telescopic sections must be changed rather than the entire boom. This allows the advantages of both boom variants to be exploited, says Liebherr. The 80-metre boom offers large hoist heights and radii, making ACT's new 700-tonne crane suitable for jobs that fall between the capabilities of the LTM 1500-8.1 and the LTM 11200-9.1. The 54-metre telescopic boom offers advantages in terms of mobility, allowing the crane to travel on the road with the front supports and a 12-tonne axle load. To minimise the set-up time the rear supports are installed as complete support boxes in a single hoist and connected using quick couplings. "We need a fast crane, a so-called taxi crane. The LTM 1650-8.1 is easy to mobilise. This is important for emergency maintenance work in the refineries where we only have four hours to set up for shutdown work. The new 700-tonne crane is the best choice here," concludes Al-Naimi. ACT operates 238 cranes, 180 of which were manufactured by Liebherr – which it has been buying since 1987. Headquartered in Jubail, the company has offices in Dubai, Riyadh, Dammam and Yanbu and employs a total of 1,000 people. The company's focus is on crane rental and operations in refinery maintenance and decommissioning. #ArabianConsolidatedTrading #Liebherr #LTM1650-8.1 #AllTerrainCrane #CranesTodayMagazine
