Cargotec has received an order from Koryo Fly Ash Cement Company in Seoul, South Korea. The order comprises a standard 10 000 S road-mobile Siwertell unloader fitted with a double bellows system and dust filter and with a capacity of 300 tph. The unloader will be used to unload cement at the company’s facilities in the Port of Dangjin. Delivery is planned for mid-February.
Jörgen Ojeda, Siwertell Sales Director for mobile unloaders, says the customer was looking for an environmentally friendly mobile unloader, with a capacity of 250 – 350 tph, suitable for ships of between 5000 and 10 000 dwt, which could be delivered quickly to meet its commercial plans. "While a short lead time from our manufacturing facilities in Bjuv, Sweden, was an important factor in the contract, it was not the only reason for choosing a Siwertell system," he says. "Koryo were impressed by the number of deliveries we have made; this gives them a great deal of confidence...They are also aware that Siwertell is widely recognised in Korea, represented by a supportive supplier that always helps to solve any problems in a friendly manner," notes Mr Ojeda. "This is seen as one of the most important aspects for a user who is not familiar with the unloading system."
Originally developed for handling cement, road mobile Siwertell unloaders can handle a wide range of commodities.
