Mammoet has announced that it has been awarded the heavy lift and transport scope for a Beaumont, Texas refinery expansion planned to increase crude refining capacity by more than 250 000 bpd. The project is expected to create up to 1850 jobs during construction and anticipated completion of the unit is planned for 2022.
Under the agreement, Mammoet will be responsible for the barging, transport and setting of modules up to 3 million lbs, as well as several reactors and columns weighing up to 2.5 million lbs. The pieces will be transported by means of SPMT, and later set using Mammoet’s LR13000, the largest crawler crane in the world.
John Rowe, Project Sales Director for Mammoet Americas, states, “We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity share our expertise and experience for the upcoming Blade project. The heavy lift and transport development strategy we have shared with TechnipFMC and ExxonMobil will allow us to provide an efficient solution and offer the best possible execution strategy for this project. We are very thankful for the opportunity and are eager to build upon our methods to ensure we perform above expectations for our customers.”
