Mammoet Maritime acquires multi-purpose pontoon

September 8 - Netherlands-based heavy lift operator Mammoet Maritime has expanded its fleet with the acquisition of a seagoing Schelde multi-purpose pontoon.

The 85-m pontoon is designed for use as a ro-ro platform and can be used for conventional transport of heavy lift and project cargoes as well as ship and yacht transport and launching. Recently, the operator launched a frigate and a large yacht from the pontoon.

 

The possession of the pontoon will give the Schiedam-based operator an edge, says the company, as there are few multipurpose pontoons currently available in Europe.

 

Use of the pontoon is expected by clients in the offshore, shipbuilding and civil engineering industries in the Benelux, Germany, Scandinavia, France and the UK.
