Mammoet establishes partnership to expand activities in Norway

Offshore staff

DORDERCHT, the NetherlandsMammoet Norway AS and Lutelandet Offshore AS (LLOF) have signed a collaboration agreement for cooperation in the areas of heavy lifting, transport, and logistics.

Under this agreement, Mammoet will provide LLOF, the organization responsible for developing and operating the offshore supply base on the Norwegian island of Lutelandet, with personnel, equipment, and expertise in the area of heavy lifting and transportation.

Jointly, the companies will be able to provide the offshore industry with a location that will allow them to construct, store, and build offshore installations with quick and easy access to the major oil fields and installations in the North Sea, Mammoet said.

LLOF’s base offers 1.4 million sq m (15 million sq ft) of onshore area that can be used for the construction, assembly, shipment, dismantling, and decommissioning of installations.

Tom Rutgrink, manager regional sales at Mammoet Europe, said: “We are excited about the advantages that this location offers. It will allow us to serve our 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.”
