Mammoet awarded a contract for the construction of EuroChem’s new ammonia plant in Kingisepp
Thursday, Aug 24, 2017
Mammoet Russia has been awarded a contract by EuroChem Group AG to support the construction of a new ammonia plant in Kingisepp, Russia.

With a design capacity of 2,700 tonnes per day, EuroChem’s future ammonia plant in Kingisepp will use the latest technology for ammonia production which is more efficient, environmentally sustainable and in accordance with high industrial safety regulations. The future plant is anticipated to create over 250 jobs in the region and pay over RUB 3bn in tax annually.

Mammoet’s scope includes installation of 20 oversized and heavy components with its PTC 35 DS. The crane will stay at the site from August till December 2017. During this period it will relocate on site up to five times, using sets of crawler units. The PTC is a ring crane, which means it is mounted on a large steel ring. This feature allows it to combine great lifting capacity - up to 5,000 metric tons - with a long reach. It also offers a relatively small footprint, flexible configuration and quick mobilization. It can be moved, using the crawler units, while remaining assembled which will save the customer months of valuable construction time.


Mammoet helps clients improve construction efficiency and optimize the uptime of plants and installations. For that purpose, Mammoet offers solutions for lifting, transporting, installing and decommissioning large and heavy structures in the petrochemical, offshore, power, and civil industries. We believe our business is about time: uptime, turnaround time and time to market. To our customers, time is the currency that matters most. That’s why we strive to bring their deadlines forward. It’s an integrated daily effort, shared by everyone at Mammoet, in every aspect of our services: creative engineering, careful planning and safe delivery.
