Heavy lift and transport specialist inducts new head of UAE branch and ops manager in Abu Dhabi; bolsters barge and tug fleets
Mammoet has expanded its workforce and equipment in Abu Dhabi by welcoming two new team members and bolstering its barge and tug boats fleets.
A statement from the global engineered heavy lift and transport specialist said the two new members in its team are Enrico Luconi Trombacchi, who will head the company’s UAE branch, and Vimal Jose, its new operations manager in Abu Dhabi.
Tombacchi has previously held executive roles in the heavy lift and transport industry in the Middle East and North Africa, while Jose brings 13 years of heavy haulage experience in Abu Dhabi, alongside an extensive network and acumen with local port and transport rules and regulations, Mammoet said.
Martijn Kuipers, MD, Mammoet Middle East and Africa, said: “Both Enrico and Vimal will bring great energy and enthusiasm to their roles, along with strategic industry experience specific to Abu Dhabi. The addition of these two new members is in line with our commitment to continue as the reliable and trusted heavy lift and transport service provider of choice in the UAE. We remain dedicated to delivering within the time frames set, reducing costs and ensuring an overall smooth, safe and timely execution of any project.”
Meanwhile, Mammoet has also partnered with marine equipment owners to support its barge and tug fleet in the emirate, and the statement added: “Mammoet delivers streamlined heavy lifting and transport plans that secure the successful construction of any facility. Combined with its existing fleet and market-leading global expertise, particularly in the field of barging, ballasting and sea-fastening, the new additions will strengthen Mammoet’s capability to meet the future developments and demands of the UAE construction market.”
According to the statement, as heavy lifting and transport play a pivotal role in industrial construction projects, Mammoet is gearing up in Abu Dhabi to facilitate these ambitious plans. The company has previously worked on key UAE projects such as the Dubai Metro, Ain Dubai observation wheel, the Dubai Mall and Burj Al Arab, as well as on the Abu Dhabi airport.
