Mammoet crews at the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV) site in San Patricio County, Texas have recently completed the heavy haul of the largest modules to be received so far for the construction of a Gulf Coast plastics manufacturing facility.
The most recent shipment included some of the largest onshore modules in the industry which were transported along a dedicated eight km (five-mile) heavy haul route using Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs). The dedicated route includes two major roadway crossings and is wide enough for a Boeing 747 to travel along it. To successfully transport the largest modules of the project, crews used as many as eight sets of SPMT with 62 axle-lines for a single module (496 axle-lines total). At its operational peak, Mammoet utilized 1578 axle-lines of SPMT to ensure continuous delivery of modules to site.
Mammoet, as one of the leader in engineered heavy lifting, allows it to mobilize from a large, fully owned heavy equipment fleet, meaning it can scale resources according to demand. It can also call upon the transport and heavy lifting expertise of colleagues in over 140 offices worldwide. In this way, it can deliver a service that offers local knowledge backed up by its global team of engineered heavy lifting experts.
