Borealis contract awarded

Borealis has contracted Mammoet as its heavy lift and transport partner for the propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Kallo, Belgium.

Mammoet will handle the inland transportation of 35 heavy items from the port of Antwerp to the Kallo site. The engineered transport provider will also deploy a custom-built gantry and multiple crawler cranes to erect the parts at the site.

The cargoes will include a 1,600-tonne C3 splitter column, which measures 108 m long, as well as large heater modules.

Gunther De Rijcke, project director at Borealis, said: “With Mammoet we have a single source supplier for lifting and transport to, and on, site. Mammoet has a significant presence in the Antwerp area and has completed many projects of this size, scale and impact for other industry leaders.”

Preparations of the largest lift – the 1,600-tonne splitter column – are under way and the operation is expected to commence in the first half of 2020.
