Mammoet enters Kazakhstan through joint venture
Mammoet-Kasmashal will predominantly provide services to the oil and gas, petrochemical, mining and wind energy sectors
Mammoet has opened its first office in Aktau, Kazakhstan. The company will operate out of Kazakhstan as a Mammoet-Kasmashal joint venture company, employing up to 40 employees in the startup.
With a number of orders already secured in the region, the new facility brings Mammoet closer to customers in the fast-growing market, allowing for more localized support and swift mobilization. The new branch will predominantly provide services to the oil and gas, petrochemical, mining and wind energy sectors.
Geoffrey Collins, general director, Mammoet, said: "The new facility reflects the company’s long term commitment to supporting growth in the region. We already have a number of projects planned in the region and are mobilizing equipment to Kazakhstan.”
The new fleet will include a LR1500 crawler crane, LTM1500 hydro crane, Sennebogen crawler crane, Kobelco crawler crane and two RT cranes. On top of these cranes, 60 axle lines of SPMT will be mobilized, as well as 24 axle lines of conventional trailers and 8x8 trucks.
