SAN PATRICIO COUNTY, TEXAS—Mammoet crews at the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV) site in San Patricio County, Texas have completed the heavy haul of the largest modules to be received so far for the construction of a Gulf Coast plastics manufacturing facility.
The modules were transported along a dedicated eight kilometre heavy haul route using self-propelled modular transporters (SPMT). Eight sets of SPMTs were used with 62 axle-lines for a single module (496 axle-lines total). At its peak, Mammoet utilized 1,578 axle-lines of SPMT to ensure continuous delivery of modules to the site.
“Mammoet is pleased to have the opportunity to provide our equipment and expertise to GCGV. We are proud to have been selected as a valued team member and strive to continuously deliver our part in bringing this facility to fruition,” Mammoet project manager Wendell Johnson said in a statement.
The company pooled resources from over six international locations to supply all the axle-lines for the GCGV transports, a Mammoet release stated.
GCGV is a joint venture between ExxonMobil and SABIC to advance construction of a plastics manufacturing facility in San Patricio County, Texas.
