In mid-May, the Turkish construction services company Mussa Insaat Dis Ticaret Ltd is set to take receipt of a standard road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S cement unloader from Cargotec. The trailer-based, diesel-powered unit will have a rated discharge capacity of 300 tph and will be equipped with a double bellows system and dust filter to deliver high levels of efficiency and environmental protection.

"While the unloader's primary location will be in the western part of Libya, our customer is planning to use it for cement unloading operations at several sites along the Libyan coast," said Jörgen Ojeda, Sales Director for Siwertell mobile unloaders. "This demonstrates the significant commercial and operational advantages of our road mobile systems. It is easy to move them from one port to another and, once at the new location, one man can have the unloader ready for operation within an hour."

The product’s reliability and short lead time, along with its high unloading capacity and low operational and maintenance costs were a factor in the customer’s choice.

"This order has a special significance for us in view of the area's recent history," he added. "We take great pride in being part of the re-construction of Libya and in helping the Libyan people to a brighter future."
