Mammoet Delivers Corendon Boeing Experience
Heavy-lift firm Mammoet has transported a Boeing 747-400 from Schiphol Airport to Corendon Village Hotel in Amsterdam.
The former KLM Boeing 747-400 City of Bangkok was moved using 48 axle lines of Mammoet’s SPMT and will be converted into a visitor attraction. The plane weighs 160 tonnes and required hydraulic lifting over 1.8 meters.
“There were many different parties that we had to work closely with – Rijkswaterstaat (the public body responsible for water management), multiple municipalities, Schiphol Airport, residents, landowners and so on. Also, a great deal of preparatory work was required, particularly for traversing the ditches and roads,” said Maarten Hegeman, Mammoet project manager.
Headquartered in Schiedam in the Netherlands, Mammoet provides a range of services from transportation and logistics planning to heavy lift and crane rental.
