Mammoet, the world’s largest manufacturer of heavy lifting and transport, has also extended its current partner contract with the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix, for another two years. During the 2023, 2024 and 2025 race weekends, Mammoet will again supply a range of mobile cranes to the Dutch Grand Prix.
Mammoet will be present throughout the event, providing rapid response lifting solutions when needed during practice, qualifying and racing. Mammoet’s cranes were already present at the Dutch Grand Prix in 2021 and 2022, when Max Verstappen crossed the finish line first in front of a frenzied home crowd. There were already plans to supply Mammoet cranes for the 2023 race, but so this agreement has now been extended for another two years.
Norbert Chevalier, Director of the Dutch Grand Prix: “We are delighted that Mammoet continues to support the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix. As the top event in motorsport, we as organizers are under great pressure to ensure a safe event that is executed excellently. In case of emergency situations involving cars and drivers, Mammoet provides smart, safe and strong solutions for all our heavy lifting or transportation challenges. We rely on Mammoet because of their technical expertise and the highest quality and safety standards. This allows us to focus on delivering an event ‘Like no other’.”
Paul van Gelder, CEO of Mammoet: “A successful team works as one and uses state-of-the-art technology to achieve what was previously thought impossible. This is true both on the racetrack and for our experts in record-breaking heavy lifting engineering worldwide. We are proud to have supported the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix for the past two years and our team looks forward to three more exciting races, supported by world-class marshaling and recovery services.”
Mammoet will provide six mobile cranes for the 2023 race, with capacities ranging from 100 to 220 tons. This equipment will be strategically positioned around the track to provide the fastest recovery time and range. The original agreement was announced in 2020 but was postponed to 2021 due to the corona pandemic. Previously, Mammoet helped with construction work on turn three and fourteen at the CM.com Circuit Zandvoort.
