New Siwertell mobile unloader serves Kuwaiti construction industry
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 8 DECEMBER 2014, AT 10 A.M. (EET)
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has announced the successful delivery, commissioning and recent entry into operations of a new mobile Siwertell unloader for Kuwait-based Acico Construction Co. It was ordered in June to help meet the region's growing cement demands and is now operational in Kuwait's second largest port, Shuaiba, located south of Kuwait City.
The trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell 5 000 S road mobile unloader is fitted with dust filters and a double bellows system for uninterrupted operations. It was built in Sweden and is now unloading cement at a rated capacity of 300t/h.
The Siwertell road-mobile unloader was originally developed for handling cement, although it can comfortably handle a wide variety of dry bulk materials, explains Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile Unloaders, Siwertell. "Siwertell is considered to be one the leading manufacturers of mobile unloading systems, offering the highest standards of reliability and sustainability, along with the lowest environmental impact possible for cement operations.
"Previously, Acico has enjoyed very positive experiences operating Siwertell mobile unloaders belonging to third parties. This was an important factor in helping the company to conclude that it would like to own and operate its own unit," he adds.
"Siwertell's reputation for delivering reliable systems often makes it the preferred choice. They understand that, in the long run, a low priced system could prove to be more expensive as a result of longer downtime, high maintenance costs and a substantial need for spare parts to keep the system up and running."
ACICO Construction, part of ACICO Industries Company, was founded in 1990 and has experienced sustained and steady growth, says the company. In 2012, it won the Arabian Business Magazine award for 'Green Building Company of the Year', highlighting the company's aim for good environmental credentials.
