Mammoet and LADOL create project cargo hub in Lagos
PRESS RELEASE – Nigerian company Lagos Deep Offshore Logistic Base (LADOL) and Mammoet, the global have signed a strategic partnership aimed at expanding LADOL’s project cargo capacity for industrial sectors in West Africa.
The partnership will enable LADOL to utilize Mammoet’s crane fleet and project management services to provide clients with comprehensive and cost-effective solutions.
Mammoet will supply LADOL with an MTC 15 heavy-lift terminal crane which, according to Mammoet, turns any quay into a heavy-lift terminal. The MTC 15 can lift loads of up to 600 tonnes from the quayside to and from non-geared cargo vessels. ‘This lifting capacity is ideal for loading and offloading heavy items such as columns, vessels, reels, engines and other project cargo’, Mammoet states.
The crane will be installed at the LADOL quayside in January 2020 and will be the biggest shore crane of its kind in the region. In addition to the MTC 15, Mammoet will also mobilize a 250-tonne crawler crane to support LADOL’s quayside operations.
Commenting on the partnership, Harmen Tiddens, general manager of Mammoet West Africa, said: “We are honoured and excited to partner with LADOL. Any company with a project that requires shipping or handling of project cargo in, to or from Nigeria now has a fast, reliable and cost-effective option in Lagos.”
LADOL’s director of business development, Jide Jadesimi, added: “The establishment of a long-term relationship between Mammoet and LADOL is an extremely exciting and significant development. This will massively increase local capacity, thereby attracting the general fabrication and complex construction jobs that are in increasing demand, not just in Nigeria but across the sub-region.”
