Mammoet has successfully completed the process of weighing, transporting and lifting the modules of the P-76 FPSO platform for the Technip-Techint consortium at the Techint Offshore Unit in Pontal do Paraná – Brazil.

The consortium was contracted by Petrobras to carry out the construction and integration of the oil and gas processing modules. Mammoet was responsible for the integration part of the project.
For this job Mammoet deployed its PTC 200 DS crane, one of the largest cranes in the world.
“This was essential because large and heavy modules needed to be installed with millimeter precision, while there was limited space available for the crane on the quayside.” Mammoet said. “The unique design of Mammoet’s PTC provided the right combination for this project: a long reach (up to 250m), extreme agility (the crane can turn 360 degrees without the need for additional space) and a capacity of up to 5000 tons with a relatively small footprint. This allowed the positioning of the modules with the required precision within the limited space.”
After assembly of the PTC, Mammoet transported and lifted 30 modules within a very tight schedule and with a perfect safety record.
Upon completion of the commissioning process, the platform will have the capacity to produce up to 150,000 bbl and compress 7 MMcm/d of natural gas, operating in the Búzios III field (Santos Basin pre-salt.
