Technip-led joint venture NovArctic in cooperation with Saipem and NIPIgas has engaged Mammoet as an unloading, transportation and installation contractor for the Arctic LNG 2 project.
Arctic LNG 2 implements an innovative concept of LNG Plant on gravity based structures (GBS). Over the course of four years, Mammoet will install 42 large modules onto three concrete GBS in Murmansk.
The project is expected to use a total of around 2,000 SPMT axles, several Mega Jack lifting systems, a crane fleet spearheaded by a CC8800-1 crane that comes complete with a Boom Booster, and also around 120 workers at peak times.
This is the biggest-ever contract in the history of Mammoet, in terms of an aggregate tonnage as well. Each module will weigh between 8,000t and 17,000t; over the project’s lifespan the total weight of lifting operations will reach some 500,000t.
