Heavy lifting and transportation services company Mammoet announced Monday that it has secured contracts for two major offshore wind projects for unnamed customers in the United States, both beginning in 2023.

Together, the two contracts cover a range of port activities, including loading and unloading, handling and interim storage of XXL monopiles and the pre-assembly of turbines at a US marshaling port.

“Mammoet’s vast experience in offshore wind energy, presence in the US and proven track record of supplying specialist equipment and bespoke solutions have proven instrumental in validating these awards. With more than 30 years of experience in the United States, this will further strengthen our experience in the US offshore wind market,” said Mammoet, headquartered in the Netherlands.

“Offshore wind in the United States has been a long time coming. Our Mammoet colleagues have been running these projects globally for some time, so this is an exciting opportunity to leverage the combination of our engineering expertise with our local market experience,” he said Rick beanJr., Sales and Marketing Director for Mammoet in the US and Mexico.

Mammoet’s recent experience in the offshore wind sector includes loading, unloading and transporting jacket structures for Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland, the world’s deepest solid ground wind farm, as well as handling, storage, transport and lifting of components to assemble Hywind ropes; the largest floating wind farm in the world.

In addition, Mammoet has a contract to provide heavy lifting and transport equipment onshore for the supply and assembly of turbine components for Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the UK.

On Tuesday, another Dutch company, Ampelmann, announced contract wins in the US offshore wind sector.

The Dutch offshore crew transfer equipment specialist said Tuesday it had signed six new contracts in the United States offshore wind market for 2023, 2024 and 2025.

Contracts set for 2023 for work on two new offshore wind farms being built off the New England coast have been secured.

“In the coming year, Ampelmann’s motion-compensated gangways will help connect, wire and commission turbines at the Vineyard and Southfork wind farms, two of the first commercial offshore wind farms in the US that will bring clean energy to the region. ‘ said Ampelman. Read more here.

Offshore Engineer contacted Mammoet and asked if its contracts would apply to the Vineyard Wind and Southfork projects.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to disclose these details at this time,” said a Mammoet spokesman.
