Mammoet has announced that it has received a contract for an LNG project in Freeport, Texas, US.
The scope of the contract includes transporting a substantial number of pieces to two different sites located three miles apart. Mammoet has optimised the transport process by using two different methods of transport, by barge and over the road, depending on the various weights and sizes of the pieces.For this LNG project, Mammoet will utilise barges at three different docks, self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs) and trailers with a range of axle lines. Transport of the first pieces began in April 2016 and will continue through 2017.
Pierre Mille, Mammoet USA Sales Director, said “With the project taking place at two different locations and multiple teams responsible for coordination, communication will be the key to success.”
