According to Mammoet, strong market growth in the manufacturing and construction sectors is driving a surge in heavy lift and transport requirements in Spain. The company said the new partnerships will enable it to access this increased demand. On top of that, the partnerships will increase Mammoet’s capacity in the Spanish market with 44 self-propelled modular transporters (SPMT).

“Although we have the largest fleet of SPMTs in our European portfolio, it takes time and resources to bring the vehicles across to our Spanish projects,” explained Alvaro Macias, commercial manager, Mammoet Spain. “Spain is becoming an important market for us quickly and we wanted to explore options for a more local solution. By partnering with two trusted and experienced local specialists, we were able to add an additional 44 SPMTs to our fleet, as well as additional teams of locally-based engineers and operators. The Mammoet, Transmodal and Arbegui units can now work together across Spain to deliver projects that combine global expertise with the knowledge of local, expert operators.

Each partnership brings unique value that will enable us to deliver a complete offering to our Spanish clients. Transmodal has over 100 years of transport experience with in-depth expertise in the power, chemicals and oil and gas industries. Arbegui combines 65 years of transport know-how with an impressive fleet of heavy transport machinery. With their expertise in the transport of over-sized goods evident, Transmodal and Arbegui were a natural choice of partner to complement Mammoet’s global expertise, experience and unparalleled fleet of lifting and transport equipment.”
