Mammoet Moves Nuclear Electric Generator

40-year-old Unit Replaced for Upgrade

Strategic heavy-lift firm Mammoet has moved an outsized main electric generator at a nuclear power facility in Minnesota.

The 40-year-old unit weighed 454 tonnes and was replaced as part of an upgrade project. To complete the breakbulk transport a team from Mammoet utilized specialized lift system and 24 axle lines of SPMT.

“During the installation, Mammoet succeeded in realizing more efficiencies, including the accelerated removal of equipment that was no longer needed,” a spokesperson for the firm said.

Mammoet provides a range of heavy-lift services including project cargo transportation, logistics planning and crane rental from its headquarters in Schiedam in the Netherlands.
