Mammoet has expanded its crane fleet in the Middle East, Africa and Caspian (MEA) region with the addition of eight new units comprising crawler cranes and rough-terrain and all-terrain models.
The world’s largest engineered heavy lifting and transport service provider said the new models in the regional fleet are a 600t crawler crane, two 250t all-terrain cranes as well as one each of 400t and 100t capacity all-terrain cranes, along with three 35t rough-terrain cranes.
Mammoet said the expansion increases its capacity in the region, complementing its diverse fleet of equipment for projects and day rental jobs, adding flexibility and greater availability for work in several high-demand geographic areas.
The cranes will support Mammoet’s range of engineered heavy lifting work – from small construction sites to handling complex lifts in industrial plants. They will be available for customers across all sectors including the power, petrochemical, mining, renewables and civil construction sectors throughout the Middle East, Africa and the Caspian region.
Shortly after arrival, all cranes have been deployed on various construction projects: a short term- substation transformer installation and infrastructure construction activities throughout the UAE.
Michel Bunnik, commercial director, Mammoet Middle East and Africa, said: “We are excited to complement our current regional fleet with these additional cranes in the region as we are continually looking for ways to improve the efficiency of our operations and equipment ready availability for construction and maintenance projects, thus reinforcing our emphasis on service to our customers.”
Established in the region for over 40 years with regional headquarters in Dubai, Mammoet MEA provides equipment day hire through to turnkey mega-project solutions and is represented in eleven countries across the region: United Arab Emirates, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, South Africa, Mozambique, Nigeria, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
