Mammoet, the global leader in engineered heavy lifting and transport, will be transporting, lifting and installing all over-dimensional cargo for the refinery.

During a signing ceremony in Lagos on Tuesday, January 16, the Dangote Group of Companies and Mammoet signed the contract for this ambitious project. The new multi-billion-dollar refinery is being built by the Dangote Group of Companies in resource-rich Nigeria.

650,000 barrels per day

It has a capacity of 650,000 barrels per day and will boost economic growth in Nigeria and generate thousands of jobs. The refinery is scheduled to come on stream in 2019 and will increase the country’s oil exports and reduce its reliance on imports of petroleum products.

“We are delighted to work together with our Nigerian partner Northridge Engineering on one of the most significant projects that will help the economies of Nigeria and the West Africa region. We feel honored to have been entrusted by the Dangote Group with the heavy lifting and transport requirements for this project. We look forward to working with them to contribute to a safe and efficient project.” said Harm Tiddens, General Manager Mammoet West Africa.
