Dutch heavy lifting and transportation company Mammoet says it has successfully completed the safe transport and installation of four 1,180-ton NGL bullet tanks for Oman’s biggest petrochemical project.
Conducted at the Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (LPIC) project which is owned by Orpic, the bullets – each measuring 6 m in length and 7.8m in diameter – were positioned on sand beds in a synchronized tandem lift utilising a 1600-ton PTC ring crane and a 1,200t crawler crane, said Mammoet.
The company added that the small footprint enabled the PTC 35 DS crane to work within the limited area onsite “utilising the available space as efficiently as possible.”
Mammoet has been providing ongoing heavy lifting and transport solutions for this petrochemical project since 2017 and said in statement that it has contributed to “the outstanding safety milestone of 10 million man-hours” worked lost time injury (LTI) free.
“The achieved safety milestone is a testament to the incredible team that has been put together by our valued client. Commitment to safety is a core value and an integral part of Mammoet’s culture. With every workforce member staying focused on incident-free operations we can send everyone home safely to their families each day,” commented Andrew Lees, SHEQ Director Mammoet Middle East and Africa.
