Netherlands-based Mammoet, an engineered heavy lift and transport services company, has secured contracts for two large offshore wind projects in the U.S., both of which begin in 2023.

Mammoet would not disclose the projects or customers involved.

Together, the two contracts cover a range of port scopes, including the load-in, load-out, handling and temporary storage of XXL monopiles, plus the pre-assembly of turbines in a U.S. marshalling port, Mammoet said.

“Offshore wind in the United States has been a long time coming,” Rick Bohne Jr., director of sales and marketing for Mammoet in the U.S. and Mexico, said in a statement. “Our Mammoet colleagues have been executing these projects globally for some time, so this is an exciting opportunity to leverage the combination of our technical experience with our local market experience.” 

Mammoet has over 30 years of experience and over a dozen local branches in the U.S. and employs approximately 800 U.S. workers. 

Mammoet’s recent experience in the offshore wind sector includes the load-in, load-out and transport of jacket structures for the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm in Scotland, and component handling, storage, transport and crane lifting to assemble Hywind Tampen — the world’s largest floating wind farm. Mammoet was also awarded a contract to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport for the staging and assembly of turbine components for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the UK.
