Mammoet installs 4,900-tonne module at LNG plant
Mammoet coordinated the offload and arrival of a 4,900-tonne, 103m-long module at a liquefied natural gas project in Yamal, Russia
Mammoet has coordinated the offload and arrival of a 4,900-tonne, 103m-long module at a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Yamal, Russia.
The component, which is the LNG project’s longest, was transported from its heavy transport ship to the dock using 400 axle lines of self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs).
At the buffer area, the module was jacked down. Once this operation had been completed, the module was positioned onto Mammoet’s SPMTs and transported to the LNG plant’s foundation.
The arrival of the module, which is the 89th to arrive at the foundation, is the final component of the first LNG train to arrive, safely and on schedule, according to Mammoet.
The Yamal LNG project will involve the construction of three liquefaction trains on the Yamal peninsula, which is located on the outer rim of Arctic Siberia. The plant will have an output capacity of 16.5 million tonnes of gas per year.
Mammoet has been contracted to move 150 modules and more than 1,200 smaller items from heavy transport ships in the Port of Sabetta to the plant’s foundation.
During the course of the project, Mammoet will use 1,700 axle lines of SPMTs, the largest number ever to be used on a single project.
