Mammoet to provide mobile cranes for Dutch Grand Prix

July 26, 2022  By Don Horne

Mammoet will again be an event supplier to the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix 2022, supplying a range of mobile cranes to the event.

The race – which will be at Circuit Zandvoort, the Netherlands – is slated to be held on Sept. 2-4.

The company provided a range of cranes on site for the 2021 race weekend, from which Max Verstappen emerged victorious, ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

“Formula 1 racing demands the highest levels of technical expertise. To succeed, teams must work together, bringing together diverse skills across many countries, languages and cultures. It is the same in engineered heavy lifting,” says Paul van Gelder, CEO of Mammoet. “Every week, our colleagues everywhere help the world to grow; from turns three and 14 at Circuit Zandvoort to some of the world’s largest infrastructure. We are proud to lend this experience once again to the event.”


This year, Mammoet will again mobilize to site, with six mobile hydraulic cranes ranging from 100-220t working to provide recovery services from trackside locations during practice, qualifying and race day. This equipment has been chosen to have the optimum outreach, capacity and handling speed required by the event’s organizers.

Cranes will mobilize to site on the Tuesday of race week, before undergoing thorough checks throughout Wednesday and Thursday, in preparation for the weekend’s action. The selection of cranes, including several Tadano ATF 200G-5 and Grove GMK 51320-2 models, will assist track marshals as the sessions progress.

This year marks the second of three currently contracted Dutch Grands Prix for which Mammoet will provide recovery services. Fulfilment of the agreement, announced in 2020, was delayed until the 2021 event by the coronavirus pandemic.
