Mammoet upgrades capacity in Westdorpe

Mammoet has installed a MTC 15 crane at its multipurpose terminal in Westdorpe, the Netherlands.

The MTC 15 from Mammoet’s range of mobile terminal cranes features a maximum lifting capacity of 600 tons (544.3 tonnes). According to Mammoet, the lifting moment of the crane is equal to that of a large 1,200-tonne capacity crawler crane, or a floating sheerleg.

This lifting capacity enables the loading and offloading of heavy items such as columns, vessels, reels, project cargo and engines, without having to reinforce the quay, added Mammoet.

Mammoet’s terminal manager, Marol Roels, said: “With the MTC 15’s extremely high capacity and outreach, the multipurpose terminal will be ideal for clients from the oil and gas, civil construction and energy industries wishing to transfer heavy components.”

Mammoet's terminal in Westdorpe includes 100,000 sq m of storage and handling facilities, as well as an inland truck and rail connection.
