MOSCOW (MRC) -- During the spring shutdown of a hydrogen plant in northern Alberta, Canada, Mammoet was contracted to provide crane services for the planned maintenance of the high-priority facility, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.
The Fort McMurray team provided approximately six cranes, ranging in size from an 18-tonne carry deck all the way up to a 385-tonne crawler crane. To perform the large number of hoists required, Mammoet’s team supplied a variety of crane types, including several RT and AT cranes. At the center of the “sea of red booms” was a massive LR 1350 crawler crane configured with a luffing jib, proudly towering above the rest.
In the pursuit of growth for Mammoet’s operations and employees, the company aims to provide opportunities for skill development both on and off the jobsite. Besdies, Mammoet helps its workforce to expand their knowledge and impact as professionals and as people and continue to push for positive changes in the industry.
As MRC informed previously, tasked by company Grupa Azoty ((Tarnow, Poland), one of the main players on the European fertilizer and chemical market, Mammoet has recently completed the first scope of work that will lead to the construction of the propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene (PDH/PP) blocks of its client’s chemical facility. The project took place in the town of Police, in the northwest of Poland, and involved the lifting and transport of more than 480 items from a small port to the construction site six kilometers away.
According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall PP production grew in the first four months of 2021 by 16% year on year to 693,900 tonnes. All Russian producers increased their output, with Nizhnekamskneftekhim and Ufaorgsintez being the exception.
