Mammoet in massive quench tower lift

Mammoet has utilised its MSG80 ring crane to hoist a 2,000-ton (1,814-tonne) quench tower into position at Shell’s Pennsylvania chemicals project in Potter Township, USA.

According to Mammoet, the quench tower, which is used in the conditioning of a high temperature, polluted air stream so that particulate, acid gasses, metals, and other emissions can be adequately removed, measured 87 m in length, is the tallest and heaviest piece on site. The lift was completed within a pre-planned 12-hour time period.

As there was limited space at the site, Mammoet said the MSG80 was the only crane able to complete the lift, due to its small footprint and high lifting capacity.

Additionally, Mammoet’s PTC200 DS ring crane is scheduled to complete a further 45 lifts for the project.

Tim Dowdle, Mammoet’s project manager, said: “This scope required extensive planning and mobilisation within an intense schedule.”
