Mammoet, an engineered heavy lift and transport services provider, has secured contracts for two offshore wind projects in the United States, both of which begin construction 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 U.S. 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, Jr., director of sales and marketing for Mammoet in the United States and Mexico.
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.
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.
Mammoet has a long-standing history and presence in the U.S. market. With more than 30 years of experience in the United States and over a dozen local branches, Mammoet employs approximately 800 US employees.
