Mammoet has deployed three giant heavy-lift ring cranes in India's energy industry.

Mammoet says that this is the only time in the history of Mammoet in India that its high-capacity heavy-lift cranes have been concentrated in the country operating at the same time.

Mammoet's ring cranes feature containerized components, ensuring cost-effectiveness during transportation and shipping between sites and countries. Additionally, their compact base allows for concurrent on-site work, reducing overall construction lead time and minimizing civil work requirements and related costs.

"It is truly extraordinary to have three of these colossal cranes in India at the same time," says Rahul Rathod, project sales director for Mammoet India. "This monumental achievement underscores our commitment to serving India's evolving energy landscape with efficient and integrated solutions across various sectors, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, nuclear power, and offshore wind projects."

The three cranes operating in India are the PTC210-DS, a 5,000-ton capacity ring crane, that is currently stationed in Gujarat for the installation of multiple heavy refinery components.

Accompanying it are the PTC35-DS, a 1,600-ton capacity ring crane, and the PT50, a 2,000-ton ring crane, both working in Rajasthan on various heavy refinery installations.

These cranes can undertake more sitewide lifting activity from a single location, removing productivity losses due to relocation downtime and reducing civil works needed on site. Each crane has a high operating speed, making each an optimal crane for time-driven projects that require multiple lifts.

Looking ahead, Mammoet is ready to further enhance India's energy infrastructure with its upcoming projects. The company plans to introduce two additional cranes: the SK190, a 4,300-ton class crane, and the SK6000, a 6,000-ton crane. The SK6000 enables modular construction on a larger scale, cutting down on the number of operations, crane reconfigurations, and working at height during heavy industry projects.

These machines will play a key role in the installation of multiple components during shutdown activities in the coming years.
