Mammoet wins two US offshore wind contracts
28 March 2023
Heavy lift company Mammoet has secured contracts for two large offshore wind projects in the United States, both of which begin in 2023.
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.
“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, director of sales and marketing for Mammoet in the USA & Mexico.
Mammoet already has had a presence in the USA for over 30 years, has several local branches and currently 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 UK.
Mammoet is also contracted to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the offloading, staging and installation of turbine components in France.
