Mammoet wins heavy-lift contract for petrochemical plant in Oman
Mammoet has been enlisted to provide heavy-lift and transportation services for Oman’s largest under-construction petrochemical plant in Sohar
Mammoet has been contracted to provide heavy-lift and transportation services for the largest under-construction petrochemical plant in Oman.
Under the terms of the deal, the Dutch lifting company will transport approximately 75 units to the Sohar facility, including a 100m-long fractionator and four bullets weighing more than 1,000 tonnes.
The units will be transported using self-propelled platform trailers, according to Mammoet. The plant’s largest components will necessitate the temporary removal of street lights and road signs.
Once all parts have been transported to the site, Mammoet will lift and position the units into place.
The firm, which secured the contract award following the establishment of new offices in the UAE and Oman, expects to work on the project for 10 months.
Burhan Kuris, senior commercial manager for Mammoet Middle East, said: “Mammoet is proud to be part of this project and excited to have the opportunity to contribute to Oman’s growing petrochemical industry.”
