Methanex hat trick for Mammoet

Methanex has awarded the levee crossing and heavy haul scope of work for the construction of its Geismar 3 methanol plant in Louisiana, USA to Mammoet.

The heavy lift specialist will receive all oversize and overweight breakbulk cargo (exceeding 100 tonnes) that will need barge transportation to reach the site, as well as carrying out the barging, unloading and final inland transport just under a half mile to the staging area.

Geismar 3 will be built next to the existing Geismar 1 and Geismar 2 plants – in whose relocation from Punta Arenas in Chile to Louisiana, Mammoet also assisted. The facility is scheduled to be ready for operations in the second half of 2022 and is expected to generate 1.8 million tonnes of methanol every year.
