With major power plant components often manufactured off-site for transportation and installation, a heavy lifting and haulage expert like Mammoet becomes a crucial partner.
Though we are in an era when climate change is affecting social and political attitudes towards fossil fuel power generation, the fact is that most of the world’s energy still relies on the burning of coal, diesel, and natural gas. However, new conventional power plants are now designed to be more efficient, using technologies that help make fossil fuel energy cleaner and more sustainable. In addition, advanced construction techniques mean that many key power plant elements are fabricated off-site and transported to the construction site – including filters that reduce emissions.
Your heavy lifting partner
Large and heavy objects like turbines, generators, and transformers are key elements in the construction of new conventional power plants. Equally, these and other large elements are routinely removed and replaced during power plant renewal and maintenance work. With Mammoet’s extensive expertise in the energy industry, we are ideally positioned to plan and execute the lifting and transport of big and heavy components. Our experience covers everything from greenfield construction to decommissioning.
The timely arrival and installation of these elements are essential to staying on schedule, as other construction and installation activities depend on them. Because one project often has multiple contractors with their own teams on-site, early planning and close coordination of different maintenance activities optimize the schedule. Both during construction and power plant upgrade projects, the early planning, solid logistics, and heavy lifting and transport equipment, Mammoet offers can have a significant impact on schedules, reducing total downtime, enhancing site safety, and optimizing efficiency.
Experience, expertise and equipment
Over the years, Mammoet has worked on numerous power plants, with a variety of layouts, locations, and circumstances. We have built up our expertise in power plant construction, maintenance, and decommissioning. Mammoet will bring a broad pool of talented engineers to your project, ensuring a highly efficient logistical process. Our large and diverse fleet of equipment – in addition to our operational expertise – enables us to safely execute jobs that are often complex and always time-critical.
Safer and more efficient
Site safety is of paramount importance to Mammoet professionals. We combine a can-do attitude to getting the job done with stringent regard for safety, health, the environment, and quality (SHEQ) on every power plant project. In many situations, our safety standards not only meet but exceed local requirements. Our ability to take a project-wide view and provide heavy lifting expertise from planning right through to production means that we can help you find many efficiencies, reducing downtime. This includes optimal utilization of heavy lifting equipment throughout construction and reduction of on-site congestion. This again improves efficiency and will make the construction site a safer environment.
