Mammoet provide three of their biggest cranes for Petronas RAPID project

Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS) is Malaysia’s fully integrated oil and gas multinational, wholly-owned by the Malaysian Government. PETRONAS' largest downstream investment in Malaysia is the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC). With an investment of $27 billion US, it covers an area of 2,526 hectares in Pengerang, Johor. The PIC consists of the Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) and is supported by its Associated Facilities forms part of the Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC). This project supports the government’s Economic Transformation Programme which will be operational by 2019. With the production goal of 300,000 barrels per day (bpd), the refinery and petrochemical plants are designed to produce premium differentiated and specialty petrochemicals.  RAPID will contribute to transforming Malaysia in to an oil and gas hub to meet increasing demands over the next 20 years.

In order for PETRONAS to achieve their ambitious target of becoming operational by 2019, it is necessary to work on multiple phases of the construction simultaneously. Since 2016 Mammoet professionals and up to 35 cranes have been engaged on site. This involved the installation of big and heavy columns, the largest of which is 1,809 tons and 121 meters in height. To be able to lift and install those columns high capacity cranes are necessary and, given the ambitious schedule, some need to work in parallel. Therefore, Mammoet mobilized three of their biggest cranes from their global fleet to Malaysia – the PT 50 (Mammoet - PT 50, PTC 35 (Mammoet - PTC 35 and PTC 140 (Mammoet - PTC 140 ring cranes. PTCs are built on a ring track instead of crawlers. They have been specifically designed to combine a wide reach and high capacity on a small footprint. The ability to turn 360 degrees brings a combination of agility, flexibility and sheer lifting power. This is the first time in history that three of Mammoet’s PTC type cranes are operating on one site at the same time. Together they offer a capacity of 10,000 tons and 225,000 ton meters.
