About the Yamal LNG project
The Yamal LNG project comprises of the construction of three LNG liquefaction trains on the Yamal peninsula, situated on the outer rim of Arctic Siberia. The plant will have an output capacity of 16.5 million metric tons of gas per year. Within this project, Mammoet is responsible for moving 150 modules and over 1200 smaller items from heavy transport ships in the port of Sabetta to the plant’s foundation. To move all of these components to their destination as swiftly and safely as possible, Mammoet will be using more than 1700 axle lines of SPMT, the largest number of SPMTs ever to be used on a single project anywhere in the world.
