Mammoet Secures US Contracts from Mystery Clients
Dutch heavy lift and transportation specialist Mammoet has secured contracts for two large offshore wind projects in the United States, both of which begin in 2023.
The two contracts cover a range of port scopes, including the load-in, handling, and temporary storage of XXL monopiles, plus the pre-assembly of turbines in a US marshalling port.
The company said that its vast experience in offshore wind, presence in the USA, and long track record in supplying specialised equipment as well as tailor-made solutions have proven decisive to secure these awards from undisclosed customers.
“Offshore wind in the United States has been a long time coming. Our Mammoet colleagues have been executing these projects globally for some time, so this is an exciting opportunity to leverage the combination of our technical experience with our local market experience”, said Rick Bohne Jr., Director of Sales and Marketing for Mammoet in the USA and Mexico.
With more than 30 years of experience in the United States and over a dozen local branches, Mammoet employs approximately 800 US employees.
The Biden-Harris Administration set a target for the US to install 15 GW of floating offshore wind capacity by 2035, building on the country’s existing goal of 30 GW of offshore wind by 2030, which will be largely met using bottom-fixed technology.
Regarding Mammoet, the company’s recent experience in the offshore wind sector includes the load-in, load-out, and transport of jacket foundations for Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland, and component handling, storage, transport, and crane lifting to assemble Hywind Tampen, the world’s largest floating wind farm.
Furthermore, Mammoet is contracted to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the staging and assembly of turbine components for the 3.6 GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the UK. Lastly, the company is also contracted to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the offloading, staging, and installation of turbine components in France.
