Mammoet crews at the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV) site in San Patricio County, Texas have recently completed the heavy haul of the largest modules to be received so far for the construction of a Gulf Coast plastics manufacturing facility.  

The most recent shipment included some of the largest onshore modules in the industry which were transported along a dedicated eight km (five-mile) heavy haul route using SPMTs. The dedicated route includes two major roadway crossings and is wide enough for a Boeing 747 to travel along it.

To transport the largest modules of the project, crews used eight sets of SPMT with 62 axle-lines for a single module (496 axle-lines total). At its operational peak, Mammoet utilized 1,578 axle-lines of SPMT to ensure continuous delivery of modules to site. 

Wendell Johnson, Mammoet Project Manager, shares: “Mammoet is pleased to have the opportunity to provide our equipment and expertise to GCGV. We are proud to have been selected as a valued team member and strive to continuously deliver our part in bringing this facility to fruition.”
