Siwertell has signed a contract with Acico Construction, a Kuwait-based company, for its third road-mobile cement unloader.

Similar to its last delivery in 2015. The next-generation, road-mobile unloader will be a trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell 10 000 S unit, fitted with dust filters and a double bellows system for uninterrupted operations. Like its predecessor, it will have a rated capacity of 300 tph.

The new unit will be built at Siwertell’s premises in Bjuv, Sweden, and delivered by the end of 1Q17. It will operate in Kuwait’s second largest port, Shuaiba, located south of Kuwait.

Acico also operates a Siwertell 5000 S unit, which was delivered in 2014. Acico benefits from a Siwertell Care maintenance support contract, signed in 2015. With one more year to run, it covers Acico's first two road-mobile units. The agreement includes an ongoing training element for Acico maintenance staff, covering mechanical and electrical systems and instrumentation.


"Repeat contracts are very important indicators of performance and customer satisfaction," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile Unloaders, Siwertell. "Acico initially enjoyed positive experiences operating Siwertell equipment belonging to third parties. This was an important factor in helping the company decide that it would like to own and operate its own unit. This positive experience has continued, making it quite an easy decision for Acico to once again choose a system from Siwertell to meet the needs of its expanding operation."
