Mammoet Wind compiled a fleet of cranes that could complete the installation well before the deadline. Discover more on www. Before installing the first turbine. Mammoet Wind was able to keep up a high installation pace. Prior to this ambitious wind project. Mammoet was able to realize a swift mobilization of resources in the remote Victorian hills. For the McArthur project. The heaviest were the lifts of the nacelles. Using the CC2800 Narrow Track and TC2800 as the two main cranes. Mammoet Wind completed the enormous job three months ahead of schedule – installing one full turbine every eight hours. Therefore. The entire project took 15 months from planning to demobilization. With 140 turbines to install. the high profile nature of the project made safety just as important as fast delivery. Mammoet Wind was selected for its track record and safety culture. Relying on extensive experience. only four turbines of this type had ever been installed anywhere in the world. As a result.com Installing large-scale wind farms typically involves many repetitions of a single set of activities. which could be installed in one piece with the narrow track crane configuration.5-meters wide.mammoet. together with the LR1300W Narrow Track as the base and mid-tower crane. Mammoet Wind had already won time by bringing in its narrow track cranes that could maneuver on roads only 5. Extensive experience in building wind farms enabled Mammoet Wind to ensure fast and safe installation of the turbines and relocation of the cranes between the 140 turbines. The time saved on turbine installation resulted in an early connection to the grid – three months sooner than originally planned.

The 420-megawatt MacArthur Wind Farm in Australia is the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere. efficient project management and operational excellence. Mammoet Wind played a key role in MacArthur’s realization by installing 140 3-megawatt wind turbines. The key to saving time is a combination of scale. Mammoet Wind achieved this synergy by pairing its installation expertise with the vast Mammoet equipment base.120 critical lifts were carried out over a period of 11 months.
