Turkish construction services company Mussa Insaat Dis Ticaret Ltd, based in Istanbul, has ordered two road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S cement unloaders from Cargotec in less than three months. The trailer based, diesel powered units will have a rated discharge capacity of 300 tph and are scheduled for delivery in mid-May 2014 and late August 2014.

"A second order within two months of the first is a significant vote of confidence for the operational advantages delivered by Siwertell mobile unloaders," said Jörgen Ojeda, Director for Siwertell mobile unloaders. "Our customer plans to use the Siwertell units for cement unloading operations at several sites along the Libyan coast, demonstrating the flexibility of our road mobile systems. Not only are they easy to move from one port to another but once at the new location, the unloader can be prepared for work very quickly by just one person."

The proven reliability of the machinery and its high unloading capacity and low operational and maintenance costs contributed to the customers decision to purchase two Siwertell unloaders. Each unloader will be equipped with a double bellows system and dust filter, ensuring that they deliver consistently high levels of efficiency and environmental protection.

"As with the first order, we take great pride in being part of the reconstruction of Libya, in view of the area's recent history," Ojeda continued.
