The company will help transport and assemble turbines for the offshore wind farm
GE Renewable Energy has selected Mammoet UK to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the staging and assembly of turbine components for Dogger Bank Wind Farm.
Mammoet will employ multiple lifting and transport crews for simultaneous operations to support with the loading of equipment and tower assembly in the marshalling harbour, a key piece in constructing the project.
The team will utilise cranes and self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT) axles at Able Seaton Port, the Dogger Bank Wind Farm marshalling harbour.
GE will start preparing the marshalling harbour and receiving components at the end of 2022.
Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, Equinor and Vargronn.
GE Project Director for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm Nathan Fahey said: “We are delighted to announce that we have selected Mammoet UK as our cranes and logistics supplier for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm.
“The cranes and associated equipment the company will provide and operate for us will be essential to the smooth operation of our marshalling harbour on Teesside, where 277 sets of blades, nacelles and towers of our Haliade-X wind turbines will be erected and transit over the course of the project. We believe Mammoet has the right expertise and equipment to be an excellent partner for us.”
Darren Adams, Mammoet’s Group Commercial Officer, added: “Mammoet is delighted to work in close partnership with GE to help build the world’s largest offshore wind farm. The project is a large step towards a net-zero future, delivering a boost for the local economy and wider 2030 and 2050 emissions targets.
By utilising Mammoet’s strong presence in the UK, headquartered from Teesside, backed up by its network of international engineering hubs, we will enable the delivery of clean, cost-efficient energy to around six million homes.”
