New bridge removes flood delays from project schedule, allowing 24/7 offloads.
Mammoet is pleased to announce it has been awarded the opportunity to provide an adjustable super bridge as levee crossing for the transport of modules for Plaquemines LNG project in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. When fully developed, Plaquemines LNG will have an export capacity of up to 20 million metric tons per year.
Under the agreement, Mammoet’s scope includes testing and constructing the bridge and its components.
During the first half of 2022, Mammoet, working with Weeks Massman Joint Venture, successfully completed the foundation of the super bridge, including the driving of the piles and installation of the pile caps. Further, other components are currently undergoing testing.
Robert Roest, Commercial Manager, Special Projects for Mammoet USA South, states, “We are very excited for this next, major step in the continuing relationship between Venture Global and Mammoet.”
The sentiment is echoed by Mammoet Sales Manager, Mike Cook, “Extensive experience and engineering led to the design of the mega bridge. It is capable of achieving never before accomplished weight capacities.”
Mammoet has broad expertise as an industry leader in safely delivering services to LNG projects and modernization not only in the USA, but also worldwide in various countries including Qatar and Canada.
