Mammoet assists in Malaysia petrochemical complex expansion

Vania Goncalves 31 Aug 2016 ASIA ENERGY & UTILITIES

An engineering solution devised by heavy lifting specialist Mammoet will be used in Malaysia to assist with the placement of large reactor vessels, as part of an expansion at a petrochemical complex.

The expansion project includes the installation of new reactor vessels ranging up to 650t and over 100m tall.

To overcome the site’s constraint operating area and low pipe rack, Mammoet has come up with a “unique solution” to install the vessels.

The use of one of its PTC 35 ring cranes — with a capacity of up to 1,600t — will enable the vessels to be installed from a main road and lifted over the pipe rack.
Mammoet APAC manager solutions Roel Wesel said: “Mammoet was able to provide our client with a unique solution that would optimize the handling of heavy vessels. Less movements on site results in reduced risks, reduced costs and a faster completion, reducing the overall time-to-market for our client.”
