The company have called the contract their “biggest ever”, with 42 large modules to be installed onto three concrete GBS. Each module will weigh between 8,000 and 17,000 tonnes - totalling over 500,000 tonnes of lifting operations over the project’s lifespan.

Mammoet say that the project is expected to use a total of approximately 2,000 SPMT axles, several Mega Jack lifting systems, and a crane fleet spearheaded by a CC8800-1 crane that comes complete with a Boom Booster. 

At peak times it will create jobs for around 120 workers.

Arctic LNG 2 is a $21.3 billion project operated by Novatek and part-owned by Total, CNOOC, CNPC and Japan Arctic LNG. EPC is being overseen by TechnipFMC. It is intended to develop the Utrenneye field on the Gydan Peninsula of West Siberia. Three LNG trains are due to be installed on gravity-based structure platforms, each with a capacity of 6.6 million tonnes per annum. The field is estimated to hold reserves of over 1.1 billion cubic metres of natural gas and 57 million tonnes of liquids.

The first train is expected to start up in 2023.

Mammoet will provide unloading, lifting, jacking and skidding services at the purpose-built shipyard near Murmansk.
