The award was for Hauling Job of the Year in the Moving project category, which highlights transports done using specialized equipment such as self-propelled transporters, dollies, and crawler assemblies.
Mammoet presented the successful completion of the transport of the furnace modules for the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures plastics manufacturing facility in San Patricio County, Texas. The largest furnace module measured approximately 91m long by 43m wide, towered over 21m tall (300 ft. long by 140 ft. wide and nearly 170 ft. tall). and weighed in over 8,000t. A single module required seven trains of SPMT trailers at 46 axle lines in length and each module was transported along a dedicated eight kilometer, or 4.7-mile, heavy haul route using SPMTs.
Adam Bettis, Engineering Team Lead at Mammoet stated how proud the company was to accomplish this project, and that it was a great honor to have the opportunity to receive the Hauling Job of the Year in its category.
