Mammoet expands US crane fleet
Dutch international heavy lift company Mammoet is expanding its US rental fleet with a $100 million investment in equipment, in preparation for a number of major new projects.
The company is also recruiting additional personnel and investing it other resources to expand the company overall. The vast majority of the investment in new cranes is being spent on crawler cranes between 100 and 600 tonnes.
The company is also planning to base one of its new 1,600 tonne Terex CC8800-1 - complete with the new Boom Booster kit- in the country, where it will be needed for several upcoming Gulf Coast projects, including a Cat Cracker turnaround project at refinery in South Texas.
The new cranes will take the company’s fleet from 75 to 100 units between 100 and 1,600 tonnes.

Mammoet is basing one of its new Terex CC8800-1s in Texas
Sales director Pierre Mille said: “We are excited to introduce this brand new CC 8800-1 to the US market. Its large capacity and unmatched flexibility make it possible to be used in confined spaces without compromising its lifting abilities. The Boom Booster kit will also give the crane even greater capacity, specifically for tall vertical lifts.”
“This expansion will allow us to better serve the demand of our loyal and trusted customers who are relying on us to fulfil their needs on a number of major projects along the Gulf Coast. We will also be able to widen our range of services and in turn enter new business areas, such as plant maintenance and full service turn-arounds. With a global shift in project work to the Gulf Coast, additional personnel will be available to provide more manpower to these projects and new ventures. In addition to these small and medium size cranes.”
