Nigerian Lagos Deep Offshore
Logistic Base (LADOL) and Mammoet, the global leader in engineered heavy
lifting and transport, are proud to announce a strategic partnership.

The partnership is aimed at
expanding LADOL’s capacity for project cargo handling and logistics for
industrial sectors in West Africa and enables LADOL to utilize Mammoet’s crane
fleet and project management services to provide clients with more
comprehensive and cost-effective solutions.

Mammoet would supply LADOL with
its heavy lift terminal crane – MTC
15, which
turns any quay into a heavy lift terminal. 

With a load moment matching a 1,200
tonne crawler crane or a large floating sheerleg, the crane enables loads up to
600 tons to be lifted to and from the quay from non-geared cargo vessels.

This lifting capacity is ideal
for loading and offloading heavy items such as columns, vessels, reels, engines
and any other project cargo. 

The crane would be installed at the LADOL quayside
in January 2020 and would be the biggest installed shore crane of its kind in
the region. 

In addition to the MTC 15, Mammoet will mobilize a 250-ton crawler
crane to support Ladol’s quayside operations.

Commenting on the partnership,
Harmen Tiddens, General Manager of Mammoet West Africa, said: “We are honoured
and excited to partner with LADOL, because together we can bring greater value
to our joint customers. Any company with a project that requires shipping or
handling of project cargo in, to or from Nigeria, now has a new, fast, reliable
and cost-effective option in Lagos.”

LADOL’s Executive Director
Business Development, Mr. Jide Jadesimi, said: “The establishment of a long term
relationship between Mammoet and LADOL is an extremely exciting and significant
development in terms of massively increasing local capacity. Thereby attracting
to Nigeria the general fabrication and complex construction jobs that are in
increasing demand not just in Nigeria but across the Sub Region.”
