Mammoet expands Texas services

Mammoet Americas has taken delivery of the first of 11 Liebherr all-terrain cranes, as the company prepares to target the crane rental market in Texas.

According to Mammoet, the fleet expansion will increase its rental capacity in the area and allow the company to better serve the growing demand of its customers.

The Texas branch will focus on day-to-day transports, lifts, shutdowns, turnarounds and plant maintenance, in addition to supporting project work along the Gulf Coast. The company is also extending its services to cover smaller lifting and transport demands. 

"This week marks an important milestone for Mammoet USA as we receive the first of 11 brand new Liebherr all-terrain cranes. This will enable us to deepen our presence in Gulf Coast plants and fulfil our clients' requests to provide day cranes on top of the project work which Mammoet is so well known for," said Pierre Mille, branch manager of Mammoet Americas Texas East.

The new fleet will include a 130-tonne capacity LTM 1130-5.1, as well as ten cranes ranging from 120 tons (108.8 tonnes) to 550 tons (498.9 tonnes). 

The cranes are expected to be delivered before the end of summer 2018.
