Mammoet secures two offshore wind contracts in the United States
Engineered heavy lift and transport services giant Mammoet has been tagged to provide a broad scope of services for two large offshore wind projects in the United States. Both of the projects, which remained undisclosed, will begin in 2023.
Together, the two contracts cover a range of port scopes, including the load-in, load-out, handling and temporary storage of XXL monopiles, plus the pre-assembly of turbines in a US marshalling port.
With more than 30 years of experience working in the United States, these will further strengthen the company’s experience in the US offshore wind market, the company said in its statement.
“Offshore wind in the United States has been a long time coming. Our Mammoet colleagues have been executing these projects globally for some time, so this is an exciting opportunity to leverage the combination of our technical experience with our local market experience,” said Rick Bohne, Jr., director of sales & marketing for Mammoet in the USA & Mexico.
Mammoet has a long-standing history and presence in the US market. With more than 30 years of experience in the United States and over a dozen local branches, Mammoet employs approximately 800 US employees.
Mammoet’s recent experience in the offshore wind sector includes the load-in, load-out and transport of jacket structures for Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland, and component handling, storage, transport and crane lifting to assemble Hywind Tampen; the world’s largest floating wind farm.
Furthermore, Mammoet is contracted to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the staging and assembly of turbine components for Dogger Bank wind farm in the United Kingdom. Lastly, Mammoet is also contracted to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the offloading, staging and installation of turbine components in France.
