Crane Operator - Mammoet

October 20, 2015

Nick has been with Mammoet for 4 years and has been on the Sturgeon Refinery Project since January 2015. Nick works in the heavy lift division and operates the 2nd largest crane in Canada, the LR11350 which has the capacity of 1350 metric tons.  The heaviest lift his crane has done on site is 960 metric tons which was Reactors 1 & 2.  He also tailed the cracking reactor which was lifted with the strand jack tower. Originally from North Bay, Ontario, Nick likes that this project gives him the opportunity to be home in Sherwood Park every night to spend time with his family as well as to fish. His father, who is also a crane operator has been the biggest influence in his life and he is very proud of the success of his career. Nick’s work philosophy is to trust your instincts, and believes the best advice he can give to the next generation of Oil & Gas construction workers is to save your money.
