Siwertell wins first order for cement plant in Myanmar

World Cement,

CITIC Heavy Industries Co Ltd (CITIC) has placed an order with Cargotec’s Siwertell for a rail-travelling ship unloader rated at 800 tph. The ST-640 M-type ship unloader will be used to unload coal from barges for a new cement plant in Myanmar, marking the first Siwertell delivery to that country. The 5000 tpd greenfield cement plant is a collaboration between CITIC and Siam Cement Group’s Mawlamyine Cement Ltd (MLC).

"A Siwertell screw-type unloader was the preferred solution for the new Mawlamyine cement plant,” explains Ola Jeppsson, Siwertell Sales Manager. “The low weight of the unit when compared to alternative unloading systems minimises loads on the jetty and so reduces jetty construction costs."

"MLC will benefit from all the excellent attributes of our Siwertell unloaders including efficiency and quiet, safe, environmentally-friendly operations without dust or spillage,” Mr Jeppsson adds.

Delivery of the ship unloader is scheduled for mid-2015 and the order includes an enclosed discharge arrangement for transferring coal to the jetty conveyor. The unloader will be delivered in pre-assembled parts, with final assembly, testing and commissioning taking place on site at Mawlamyine.
