Mammoet Belgium has opened a new facility in the Port of Antwerp to provide localized support to the region’s growing petrochemical and industrial sector.
A new dockside base in Antwerp means greater capabilities and increased equipment availability
The Port of Antwerp is home to the largest integrated oil and chemical cluster in Europe. The area has recently secured the biggest investment in the European chemical industry in the past two decades, with plans for a 3 billion euros propane dehydrogenisation (PDH) plant and an ethane cracker unit to be built. In addition to the new dockside location, Mammoet has invested heavily in new equipment and professionals to ensure they are well equipped to service customers in this growing sector.
Mammoet Belgium’s new location in the heart of Antwerp’s petrochemical and industrial sector will bring the company’s specialist services closer to its customers. Customers will benefit from a substantial increase in on-site resources, including a fleet of new cranes ranging from 40-ton to 500-ton, tower cranes and SPMTs, followed by an expansion of the Antwerp workforce. Furthermore, a strategic decision was made to locate the facility on the harbor with load-in/load-out facilities. This, combined with the enhanced availability of equipment, will considerably reduce mobilization time and associated costs leading to a more efficient and streamlined service.
“We believe strongly in our capacity to grow in the Antwerp region,” says Paul Van Vuren, Managing Director for Mammoet Belgium. “It is our strategy to continuously build on our offering to our clients and deliver efficient and cost-effective solutions. We aim to achieve this in Antwerp by investing in people and resources to maximize the potential of our new dock-side location.”
The new facility is located at Kaai 730, Antwerpsebaan 57, 2040 Antwerp. The site is adjacent to the large deep-water Liberty-dock (Bevrijdingsdok) and includes onsite available storage facility.
