A new mobile Siwertell unloader has been successfully delivered, commissioned and has entered operations for Kuwait-based Acico Construction Co. The unloader is being used in Kuwait’s second largest port, Shuaiba, which is south of Kuwait City.
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, won the order in June. The trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell 5 000 S road mobile unloader is fitted with dust filters and a double bellows system for uninterrupted operations. It was built in Sweden and is now unloading cement at a rated capacity of 300 tph.
The Siwertell road-mobile unloader was originally developed for handling cement, although it can comfortably handle a wide variety of dry bulk materials, explains Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile Unloaders, Siwertell. "Previously, Acico has enjoyed very positive experiences operating Siwertell mobile unloaders belonging to third parties. This was an important factor in helping the company to conclude that it would like to own and operate its own unit," he says.
ACICO Construction, part of ACICO Industries Company, was founded in 1990 and in 2012 won the Arabian Business Magazine award for 'Green Building Company of the Year', highlighting the company's aim for good environmental credentials.
