Mammoet won a contract for Kuwait’s $4,3bn airport construction project

The Turkish construction company Limak Insaat has just contracted Mammoet to carry out the transport and installation of 804 concrete elements for a new $4,3bn terminal construction project at Kuwait International Airport on behalf of the Kuwait Ministry of Public Works.

This state-of-the-art terminal should expand the airport and establish a new regional air hub in the Gulf, increasing passenger capacity to 25 million per year. Mammoet’s task will be to install all the concrete elements of the terminal’s main structure, weighing between 200 and 360t. To complete the operations, Mammoet will use nine crawler cranes with capacities from 600 to 1600t and 72 axle lines of SPMT.
