The Dangote Group of Companies and Mammoet have signed a contract for Africa’s largest oil refinery. Under the contract Mammoet will transport, lift and install all over-dimensional cargo for the refinery.
The new multi-billion-dollar refinery is being built by the Dangote Group of Companies in Nigeria. It will have a capacity of 650 000 bpd and will boost economic growth in Nigeria, as well as generate thousands of jobs. The refinery, scheduled to come onstream in 2019, will increase the country’s oil exports and reduce its reliance on imports of petroleum products.
“We are delighted to work together with our Nigerian partner Northridge Engineering on one of the most significant projects that will help the economies of Nigeria and the West Africa region. We feel honored to have been entrusted by the Dangote Group with the heavy lifting and transport requirements for this project. We look forward to working with them to contribute to a safe and efficient project.” said Harm Tiddens, General Manager Mammoet West Africa.
