South Africa is experiencing a shortage of liquid petroleum gas (LPG). To meet the country’s rising demand, Sunrise Energy is building an LPG Import Terminal to expedite distribution.
Phase one of the project involved the installation of five LPG storage bullets which had to be transported from a local manufacturer to Sunrise Energy’s facility in Saldanha Bay. With each 67-meter bullet weighing 580 tons, it was the largest vessel of its kind manufactured in the Southern hemisphere. Mammoet developed a way to make the monumental move in the least amount of time and cost possible.
