• Unique new construction projects
The uniqueness of the work of Mammoet and that of the department of Engineering, in particular, is that no order is ever the same. In fact, there is only one thing that is standard, and that is that a unique solution for a unique problem always has to be created. An attractive field of work for the Engineering department is building unique new constructions. A recent example is the order from the navy of a foreign country for the construction of a ship specially designed for salvaging sunken submarines. This came as a consequence of another engineered project that established the reputation of Mammoet worldwide: the salvaging of the Kursk.
• From heavy transport to nuclear reactors
Engineering at Mammoet is divided into a number of specialisms, including the horizontal work (transport), the vertical work (lifting), software, nuclear/power, salvage, and the design and calculation department. There is very in-depth know-how in-house within these specialisms. Mammoet has developed quickly into a specialist in the transport and construction of reactor modules, very demanding work that must be carried out very quickly and at the same time exceptionally safely and carefully.
• Safety first
What applies to Mammoet as a whole certainly also applies to Engineering: safety first. Customers want everything to be fully calculated beforehand and laid out in manuals, and often also ask that an extensive risk analysis be carried out.
Mammoet checks all engineering, both in theory and for practical feasibility and there is also an external check made by renowned companies for new construction projects. These safety efforts have gained Mammoet the reputation with customers of being a responsible partner that does all that is possible to allow projects to take place safely.
