The Mammoet-Haisla joint venture has completed the pile handing scope for the LNG Canada project in British Columbia.

Mammoet-Haisla provided offloading services for incoming pipe piles throughout the pandemic, completing its scope during March. Over the course of a year, teams offloaded, transported, and placed 6,513 piles – requiring 39,078 chains to secure the piles, and over 50,000 working hours onsite.

In addition to adjusting and adhering to constantly changing coronavirus safety protocols and local restrictions, teams were also faced with adverse weather conditions. 

Mammoet-Haisla’s overall scope for this project includes receiving all oversize equipment and modules at the project’s materials offloading facility (MOF), transporting them to the build site, and lifting them onto final foundations. Over the span of three years, the joint venture will be responsible for the horizontal and vertical movement of more than 350,000 tonnes of equipment, with the largest items weighing greater than 10,000 tonnes each. Mammoet has begun mobilisation of SPMTs for the upcoming work.

The crane scope is set to begin this autumn; three large cranes will be stationed onsite, including two CC3800s and one LR1600, accompanied by several smaller support cranes.
