Mammoet inks Lutelandet partnership

December 13 - Mammoet Norway has signed a collaboration agreement with Lutelandet Offshore (LLOF) - the company responsible for developing and operating the offshore supply base on the Norwegian island of Lutelandet.

The agreement will see Mammoet provide heavy lifting, transport and logistics services for the Norwegian offshore base, which comprises 1.4 million sq m of space that can be used for the construction, assembly, shipment, dismantling and decommissioning of installations.

Mammoet and LLOF will work together to provide the offshore industry with a location that allows them to construct, store or build offshore installations with quick and easy access to the oilfields and installations in the North Sea.

Tom Rutgrink, manager of regional sales at Mammoet Europe, said that the advantageous location of the offshore base would allow the company to serve its clients more efficiently.

"For instance, we save time as platforms can be constructed simultaneously in various European yards and subsequently assembled at Lutelandet. Sailing distances from the European construction sites to Lutelandet are short and the location provides easy access to the North Sea. This makes assembly and decommissioning of the platforms onshore more efficient," he explained. 

Rutgrink added that the cooperation enables LLOF to optimise the utilisation of its yard. "And this location lends itself for the storage of heavy components, for which it is better equipped with our manpower and equipment at hand."

Mammoet has recently executed its first job on Lutelandet - the load-in of a platform that is going to be dismantled.
