Cargotec subsidiary, Siwertell, has received an order for a road-mobile shipunloader to unload cement at a rated capacity of 300 tph from an undisclosed client. The new unit will join a similar unloader, which the client has been operating since 2015.
“This contract adds to our growing list of repeat orders for road-mobile units,” said Jörgen Ojeda, Director of Mobile Unloaders at Siwertell. "The customer is very satisfied with the performance and reliability of its existing unit and turning to Siwertell technology once again was not a difficult decision.”
According to Ojeda, customers are attracted to the operational flexibility of road-mobile unloaders – particularly for discharging ships and multiple locations. “The road-mobile unit is an excellent choice in this case because the customer does not have its own terminal. It rents space at an available jetty when a cement vessel is due."
The road-mobile unloader also operates cleanly, meaning there are no jetty clean-up costs.
The new unit will be equipped with a dust filter and a double-bellows system, allowing uninterrupted discharge when changing between trucks or rail wagons. It will be constructed at Siwertell's premises in Bjuv, Sweden, with delivery scheduled for March 2017.
In addition, the customer has signed a service contract with Siwertell that covers both the new and existing unit. This includes two inspection and service visits each year, along with remote support and trouble-shooting via modem connection. It also provides valuable discounts for spare parts.
