Press release Siwertell

Repeat Siwertell road-mobile unloader order in less than three months

3/14/2014

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 14 MARCH 2014 AT 11 AM (EET)

A Turkish construction services company Mussa Insaat Dis Ticaret Ltd of 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 300t/h 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," says 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."

Further factors contributing to the orders were the well documented reliability of Siwertell mobile unloaders, along with their high unloading capacity and low operational and maintenance costs.

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 re-construction of Libya, in view of the area's recent history," Mr Ojeda adds.
