Mammoet to support EuroChem ammonia plant construction

Mammoet’s scope includes installation of 20 oversized and heavy components with its PTC 35 DS. The crane will stay at the site from August – December 2017. During this period, it will relocate on-site up to five times, using sets of crawler units. The PTC is a ring crane, which means it is mounted on a large steel ring. This feature allows it to combine great lifting capacity (up to 5000 t) with a long reach. It also offers a relatively small footprint, flexible configuration and quick mobilisation. It can be moved, using the crawler units, while remaining assembled which will save the customer months of valuable construction time.

With a design capacity of 2700 tpd, EuroChem’s Kingisepp ammonia plant will use the latest technology for ammonia production, which is more efficient, environmentally sustainable and in accordance with high industrial safety regulations. The plant is anticipated to create over 250 jobs in the region and pay over RUB 3 billion in tax annually.
