Cargotec has been awarded a contract to supply the UK’s TAD Enterprises Ltd with a Siwertell 5 000 S mobile unloader. The unloader will be used to handle cement operations at the Black Sea port of Yeysk in Russia. It will load trucks alongside the berth for further transportation via road. The mobile unloader is trailer-based and diesel-powered. A double-bellows system will enable it to continuously handle cement at a capacity of 300 tph. The Siwertell 5 000 S also includes a dust filter system, which will reduce its environmental impact.
“The new Siwertell unit will offer the company a flexible, low cost cement handling operation,” said Jörgen Ojeda, Siwertell Sales Director. “TAD Enterprises currently employs a pneumatic mobile unloader, but is not happy with its performance. The company also expressed concerns about the level of maintenance that this type of unloading system demands […] Along with reliability, Siwertell mobile unloaders offer flexibility and high capacity bulk handling combined with low operational and maintenance costs; this also had a major impact on the client's decision.”
The new system is due to delivered in February 2014.
