Mammoet nominated for trade award
By Laura Hatton22 November 2013
International heavy lift and transport company Mammoet has been nominated for the Latin American Trade Award 2013 by the Netherlands American Business Council (NLABC).
The Latin American Trade Award is presented once every two years. It is awarded to companies that that have had a positive impact with Dutch-Latin American economic relations.
Mammoet has been nominated for the award for its three-phased sustainability strategy for Latin America, a company spokesperson explained. The nomination includes Mammoet’s installation of the P55 deck box onto a Petrobras floater and installation of twenty modules on two FPSO vessels, a company spokesperson added.
Christiaan Lavooij, managing director, said, “Mammoet was asked to install a number of modules on the P58 and P63. The wide variety of modules and limited working space were potential causes for a lengthy process. But with our brand new PTC crane, Mammoet had the perfect tool for the task. Compact, flexible and with impressive capacities, the PTC-200 DS was the only crane needed – and suitable – to get the job done.
“Bringing a crane that could safely place all components from one position considerably shortened Petrobras’ delivery schedule. Time that would otherwise have been lost on moving and assembling cranes could now be spent on actual production in the field. The same applied to P55 where Mammoet mobilised a custom-built gantry minimising site hindrance and optimising construction schedules.”
Mammoet’s involvement in Latin America also includes a sustainability plan, where the company employs and educates local people.
