Mammoet Establishes Partnership with Lutelandet Offshore

Tom Rutgrink of Mammoet Europe and Tor Gjertsen of Lutelandet OffshoreMammoet Norway and Lutelandet Offshore (LLOF) signed a collaboration agreement for cooperation in the areas of heavy lifting, transport and logistics. LLOF’s offshore supply base offers companies in the offshore industry 1,400,000mof onshore area that can be used for the construction, assembly, shipment, dismantling and decommissioning of installations. Under this agreement, Mammoet will provide LLOF with the manpower, equipment and expertise in the area of heavy lifting and transportation.

Jointly Mammoet and LLOF will be able to provide the offshore industry with a location that will allow them to construct, store and build offshore installations with quick and easy access to the major oil fields and installations in the North Sea. “We are excited about the advantages that this location offers. It will allow us to serve our clients more efficiently,” says Tom Rutgrink, Manager Regional Sales at Mammoet Europe. “For instance, we save time as platforms can be constructed simultaneously in various European yards and subsequently assembled at Lutelandet. Sailing distances from the European construction sites to Lutelandet are short and the location provides easy access to the North Sea. This makes assembly and decommissioning of the platforms onshore more efficient.”

There are many other advantages to the collaboration, Mr Rutgrink points out. “It enables Lutelandet to optimise utilisation of their yard, for example,” he says. “And this location lends itself for the storage of heavy components, for which it is better equipped with our manpower and equipment at hand.”

“We found a diligent partner in Mammoet,” says Tor Gjertsen, CEO of Lutelandet Offshore. “I am pleased and excited about the agreement. The establishment of Mammoet at the Lutelandet site will increase the overall capacity and capability of the site. The presence of a strong engineered heavy lifting and transport company with intimate knowledge of the site will ensure that we will develop into a stronger and much more capable team.”

Mammoet recently executed its first job in Lutelandet, the load-in of a platform which is going to be dismantled.
