Mammoet has been installing 100 components for a Linde plant’s gasification facility upgrade at Jurong Island, Singapore.

The items to be installed included pipe racks, rotating equipment (turbines, generators), e-containers, columns and reactors.

Overall, Mammoet employed a range of equipment to support this facility upgrade, including a CC8800-1 Boom Booster, CC2800-1, CKE2500 and 110 Mobile crane, besides SPMTs, plus jacking and skidding systems.

Firstly, the team installed the main substation via a complex rigging method. Setup of this method took the team an entire day before installation of the main-substation took place.

The regional team then assembled the CC8800-1 with Boom Booster using the assistance of a Demag specialist – this being a first such deployment for the region. The CC8800-1 with Boom Booster was then used install the 800-tonne methanol wash column before jacking and skidding of the condenser unit took place.

“Linde highly values Mammoet’s professional and problem-solving working style, and the flexible collaboration within the teams,” said Florian Paech, site director for Linde Engineering.
