February 14 - Mammoet USA has added 23 cranes, with capacity ranging from 65 tons (59 tonnes) to 500 tons (453.5 tonnes), to support clients and plants along the US Gulf Coast.

Recently, Mammoet launched a Crane Services Division based in Louisiana, USA, to focus on plant maintenance, turnarounds and day market rental projects, which the fleet expansion will support.

Anthony Garcia, Louisiana branch manager, said: "Adding this division to our US Gulf Coast operations answers the call from many of our customers to provide a comprehensive crane service under one roof."

Mammoet's Crane Services Division is currently executing a turnaround in Pasadena, Texas, USA. In addition to a labour force of 70, Mammoet has provided 14 operated and maintained cranes, which provide 24-hour support to the site.
