Mammoet has announced that it has been awarded a contract by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America Inc. (MHIA) to support a large polymer production plant expansion project.

Mammoet’s scope for the project, which is located on the Gulf Coast in Texas, US, includes transporting several oversized and heavy pieces, including one piece weighing over 1 million lbs, reaching 160 ft in length and 30 ft dia.

A portion of the transport services will include a 40 mile over-the-road transport to the construction site.

Mammoet will engineer a tailor-made approach to overcome several route obstacles, such as overhead obstructions and bridges.

There is currently a wave of polymer production plant expansions throughout the US, as a result of a growing global demand triggered by population growth in cities. It is estimated that North America will add approximately 11 billion lbs of annual capacity by the end of this year, with most of that production taking place in the Gulf Coast.
