Cargotec has won a contract to supply Raysut Cement Company with a high capacity road-mobile Siwertell unloading and conveying system. The new system will be used for cement handling operations at the ports of Duqm and Sohar and will support Raysut Cement Company’s expansion plans in Oman.
The order comprises the delivery of a road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S unloader unit and a road-mobile Siwertell PumpMaster blow pump conveying unit, commissioning, supervision and spare parts. Once delivered in July 2014, the system will have a cement discharge and conveying capacity of 300 tph. Peter Göransson, Siwertell Sales Manager, notes: “This is a particularly high value, considering that the distance from the unloader and blow pump unit to the silo top is about 270 m with an elevation of about 40 m."
"Raysut chose this system because it is one of the very few products on the market that offers such a high discharge capacity while remaining fully road mobile,” he says, adding that Siwertell equipment’s proven track record of reliable performance and minimal environmental impact were also important factors in the decision.
The system will be built at Cargotec's Siwertell manufacturing facilities in Bjuv, Sweden, and will serve the Sultanate of Oman's eastern port of Duqm, located on the Arabian Sea, as well as one of its largest ports, Sohar, which is situated on the country's north coast in the Gulf of Oman.
