Mammoet Australia and our Markets:

We serve the following markets: • Mining • Petrochemical • Offshore • Power • Crane hire


Mammoet have been at the forefront of a number of successful modular mine expansion projects in Australia. The advantages of modular construction are well recognised and modularised projects have become the preferred option for infrastructure development, especially in remote areas. Typically modules are transported to the nearest port by heavy lift ship or barge and then loaded onto hydraulic platform trailers for transport to the mine site. Once on site modules are installed with heavy lift cranes or SPMTs. Mammoet introduced SPMTs (Self-Propelled Modular Transporters) to the Australian market in 2002. These transporters are highly manoeuvrable and can move large, heavy modules around congested sites, placing them accurately on foundations, and then driving away from under the structure. Mammoet not only takes responsibility for the heavy lifting and transport, but also for the route surveys, permits and liaison with the road authorities and other bodies. This forms part of our Factory to Foundation service. Through strategically located depots, Mammoet provide hydraulic telescopic cranes, supervisors, operators and riggers for maintenance shut-downs as well as also providing general crane services. All our services are provided with our usual thorough approach to safety and we ensure that our culture, standards and procedures are aligned with those of our clients.



Mammoet has had extensive experience with a number of LNG projects within Australia. These have made us the market leader in modular transport and the installation of large vessels and columns in brownfield and greenfield environments. Once again our safety culture is a perfect match for that of our customers in this safety-conscious industry.

Offshore and Marine

The Mammoet Group has extensive experience with site moves and load-outs of extremely heavy offshore structures, with weights exceeding 20,000 tonnes. Mammoet Australia benefits from this expertise. We recently started on the construction of a 1.7 kilometre long jetty for a large LNG project. This project called for a unique combination of shallow draught and high lifting capacity hence we installed one of our custom-designed ring cranes on a large barge.


Our services to the power industry include the installation of wind turbines and transporting and installing large transformers and turbines.

Equipment Hire

Mammoet Australia has a fleet of around 60 cranes available for hire. Our hydraulic telescopic cranes have capacities from 20 tonnes to 400 tonnes, while our fleet of crawler cranes ranges from 150 tonnes to 1,350 tonnes. All cranes are supported by an extensive range of rigging equipment including spreader bars, lifting beams, load spreading mats, support stools and other ancillary equipment. We have around 166 axle lines of SPMTs permanently based in Australia along with a wide range of conventional hydraulic platform trailers, supported by a fleet of heavy duty prime movers. For particularly large projects we draw on the resources of the Mammoet global fleet. All crane and transport activities are supported by our in-house engineering capability.


Mammoet Australia – the Company

After Mammoet had undertaken several projects in the country the Australian subsidiary was established in 2002. We now operate from six offices and depots and have over 100 personnel. Our emphasis on HSEQ (Health, Safety, Environment and Quality) has enabled us to quickly build an excellent reputation in the mining, oil and gas industries. The thorough preparation of our projects combined with an innovative approach mean that we can help customers complete their projects safely while being on time and on budget. We believe that this sets us apart from the competition. For complex and large scale projects we can draw on the diverse capabilities of the Global Engineering Department at Mammoet’s head office in the Netherlands.

380 kilometres through an ancient landscape

We transported 38 heavy, oversize modules from Port Hedland to an iron ore mine in the Pilbara, Western Australia, one of the world’s most ancient landscapes. We set up a base with a workshop for servicing the 144 axle lines of trailers and 9 prime movers. Due to the length of the modules we could only take two modules at a time down the Great Northern Highway. Our large team of traffic controllers minimized disruption to other traffic on the route. Each 380-kilometer trip took two days and four modules were delivered every week. On site we used 48 axle lines of SPMTs, which had to cope with inclines up to 8%, to transport the modules and then installed them using one of our cranes. The oversize transport of the modules took 13 weeks and was completed without incident.


LNG Jetty Project

Mammoet Australia is working on a new 1.7 kilometre long LNG tanker jetty for an LNG project off the coast of Western Australia. The heavy loads and the limited water depth called for a special lifting solution. Mammoet’s Engineering Department decided to install one of our custom-made PTC ring cranes on a 100 x 30 meter barge. The crane can slew (revolve) a full circle and handle loads up to 310 tonnes at 20 meters radius (53 tonnes at 60 meters) without ballasting the barge. This provides the flexibility needed for this project. In fixed jib mode (non-slewing) the unit can lift 1000 tonnes at 20 meters (316 tonnes at 70 meters). The crane and barge can operate in wind speeds up to 12.7 meters per second and a wave height of 1.8 meters. The PTC will be used for the alignment and placement of the caissons which form the jetty base. Given that the location is a class one nature reserve the barge and crane were subject to strict quarantine regulations and were required to be thoroughly cleaned. Fortunately Mammoet have built up extensive local knowledge regarding AQIS requirements in this area, having imported various types of used equipment for previous projects into Australia, in the past.

Mammoet’s One Way of Working

Mammoet is a large, international company with thousands of employees. We work on both large and small projects. Small projects are carried out with the same dedication and professionalism as large ones. Despite their different nationalities and backgrounds, all Mammoet employees operate as one team.

We do this through our corporate SHE-Q policy, continuous training and development of all employees, clear work instructions, strict safety procedures and company-wide safety, health, environment and quality campaigns.
