Mammoet on track for F1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix 2022

The company will mobilise to the site with six mobile hydraulic cranes ranging from 100-220t working to provide recovery services from trackside locations

Mammoet will once again be an event supplier to the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix 2022, the company has announced. The heavy-lift specialist will supply a range of mobile cranes to the event, which will be held on 2 to 4 September at the CM dot com Circuit Zandvoort in the Netherlands.

The company will mobilise to the site with six mobile hydraulic cranes ranging from 100-220t working to provide recovery services from trackside locations during practice, qualifying and race day. According to Mammoet, equipment has been chosen to have the optimum outreach, capacity and handling speed required by the event’s organisers.

In February 2021, Mammoet said it expanded its crane fleet in the Middle East and Africa region.

Cranes will mobilise to site on the Tuesday of race week, before undergoing thorough checks throughout Wednesday and Thursday, in preparation for the weekend’s action. The selection of cranes, including several Tadano ATF 200G-5 and Grove GMK 51320-2 models, will assist track marshals as the sessions progress.

Paul van Gelder, CEO of Mammoet, said, “Formula 1 racing demands the highest levels of technical expertise. To succeed, teams must work together, bringing together diverse skills across many countries, languages and cultures. It is the same in engineered heavy lifting. Every week, our colleagues everywhere help the world to grow; from turns three and 14 at CM dot com Circuit Zandvoort to some of the world’s largest infrastructure. We are proud to lend this experience once again to the event.”

This year marks the second of three currently contracted for the Dutch Grand Prix for which Mammoet will provide recovery services. Fulfillment of the agreement, announced in 2020, was delayed until the 2021 event by the coronavirus pandemic. A range of cranes were on site for the 2021 race weekend, from which Max Verstappen emerged victorious, ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
