Mammoet has successfully completed transportation and installation of modules for Technip-Techint consortium's P-76 FPSO platform at the Techint Offshore Unit in Pontal do Paraná, Brazil.
Petrobras received the contract from the consortium to conduct construction and integration of the oil and gas processing modules.
Mammoet carried out the integration of a part of this project and also deployed its PTC 200 DS crane. One of the largest cranes in the world, PTC 200 DS is effective in moving and installing large and heavy modules. It was positioned at a limited space on the quayside.
The Mammoet-built PTC crane provides a long reach of up to 250m with a capacity to hold 5,000t in a relatively small footprint.
The company also claimed that this crane has the flexibility to turn 360° without requiring any additional space.
Usage of the PTC 200 DS crane enabled Mammoet to place the modules with the required precision. The company has transported and lifted 30 modules safely within the schedule.
After completion of the commissioning process, P-76 FPSO platform operating in the Búzios III field (Santos Basin pre-salt) can produce 150,000 barrels of oil and compress seven million cubic metres of natural gas daily.
Mammoet serves in mining, civil engineering, power generation and offshore projects. It provides solutions for lifting, transporting and installing of heavy structures.
