Mammoet-Starneth LLC, an international engineering company that designs and constructs giant observation wheels and structures, has filed a petition for relief under Chapter 11 in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Case No. 17-12925).  The Petition estimates the Debtor’s assets and liabilities to both be between $100 – $500 million.  Starneth made headlines earlier this year when it was terminated from its role in designing and constructing the “New York Wheel,” a planned tourist attraction on the north shore of Staten Island.  No First Day Declaration has been filed yet.  According to the DIP Motion, Starneth is no longer operating and intends to confirm a plan of liquidation.  Starneth has secured $5 million in DIP Financing from Mammoet USA North Inc., a non-debtor affiliate.  No claims and noticing agent has been proposed yet.  The case has been assigned to the Honorable Laurie Selber Silverstein.
