Via petroleum, natural gas, plastics, paints, fertilizers and more, the petrochemical industry is a main driver of the world economy. However, today’s producers face numerous challenges, from environmental regulation, though changing commodity prices, to fluctuating levels of demand on the global market - meaning profitability is always under pressure.
What’s more, by definition projects must take place close to natural energy sources; often in some of the world’s most remote locations and under extreme conditions. LNG projects in particular face significant challenges to complete all work safely, efficiently and profitably.
Heavy lifting experience
With Mammoet’s extensive experience in the petrochemical industry, we are ideally positioned to help refinery, LNG and chemical plant operators control costs. Whether via the construction of a new plant, installation of new equipment, a turnaround or shutdown, plant expansion or relocation, we work in close collaboration with our customers so that all heavy lifting and transport required for the project is carried out as efficiently as possible.
Involving Mammoet from the earliest stages of a refinery, LNG or chemical plant project means that engineered heavy lifting and transport requirements can be integrated from the planning and design phase. Modules can then be fabricated at a location where expert labor is most abundant and cost-effective, allowing more of each project to take place simultaneously and modules to be delivered efficiently, just in time.
Whether you want to plan every lift of a shutdown before the first bolt is turned, identify the benefits of modularization by analyzing the complete logistical chain for your project, or evaluate your plant design to optimize the construction schedule, our early involvement will greatly contribute to your project’s success. This is because engineered heavy lifting and transport, although not usually the biggest expense, can have a disproportionally large influence on the efficiency of a project – especially when remote locations are involved. By keeping your project on track, Mammoet will help ensure the plant goes into productivity on time. In the case of turnarounds, shutdowns or relocations, our contribution can be crucial in minimizing downtime and lowering costs.
