Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has secured its fourth road-mobile unloader order from Turkish cement specialist, Muhammet Gümüstas. Three similar systems have been delivered to the same customer since 2012. However, this latest unloader will be a 'next-generation' unit, employing the same proven technology as its predecessors, but with the added benefit of some significant mechanical and electronic advances.
The new trailer-based, diesel-powered, Siwertell 10 000 S road-mobile unloader will be used to discharge cement at 300 tph. It will be equipped with a double bellows system to allow continuous operation. Next-generation units have an automatic shifting function as standard on unloaders with double-bellows. The unloader will also be fitted with a dust filter to minimise atmospheric emissions.
"Good experience with its three existing Siwertell systems was an important factor in winning this latest contract with Muhammet Gümüstas," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile unloaders, Siwertell. "The fact that its competitors use Siwertell units was also a significant driver in this competitive business.
"The customer knows our machines and appreciates that the screw-type unloading system works extremely well with cement, offering high levels of efficiency and reliability. We also offered an extremely short lead time of around six weeks," he adds.
The new unloader will be put into operation in the Turkish ports of Kardeniz and Marmara, taking full advantage of the flexibility offered by Siwertell's road-mobile units. It is being built at Siwertell's manufacturing premises in Bjuv, Sweden. Delivery is scheduled before the end of August 2016.
The road mobile Siwertell unloader was originally designed to handle cement, making it ideally suited to this commodity. Steady development and refinement mean that Siwertell offers some of the most reliable, environmentally-friendly and sustainable systems for cement operations. In addition to flexibility, high capacity and low running costs, Siwertell road-mobile unloaders do not require any preparatory civil engineering works and can start commercial operations immediately on arrival.
