Siwertell wins 'Best Ship Loading/Unloading System' industry award - again
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 15 DECEMBER 2014, AT 1 PM (EET)
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, recently won its fourth IBJ (International Bulk Journal) award for its Siwertell products. This year, as in 2013 and 2009, Siwertell received the award for the Best Ship Loading/Unloading System. In 2011, Siwertell won the IBJ award for Environmental Protection.
Presenting the award to the Siwertell team at the Beurs-World Trade Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 17 November this year, IBJ said: "Siwertell convinced our judges that its innovative developments deliver world-leading bulk handling performance in ship unloaders, loaders and terminal systems. With safety as priority and inherently clean operations, Siwertell demonstrated reliability, quality service and a multi-cargo capability."
"The IBJ awards recognise excellence in the maritime bulk industry, so this is the perfect way for us to celebrate our 40th anniversary," says Per Karlsson, President.
"Safe, efficient, clean operations are becoming ever more important, both from an ethical standpoint and as a result of increasingly tough rules and regulations around the world. Once again, Siwertell has been judged to offer the best products to meet these demands. Winning in this category multiple times since the awards were introduced in 2009 sends a clear message to the industry that we understand the challenges it faces and that we offer the best solutions; through established proven technologies supported by innovative design and an eye for future requirements."
In addition to having market-leading systems delivering significant commercial advantages, Siwertell's customers have the security of true global support. Furthermore, as technology develops and operational requirements and regulations change, Siwertell can modernise and upgrade existing systems to take full advantage of new developments.
"Market leading performance must be underpinned by excellent reliability and the confidence provided by extended manufacturer support. As a Cargotec brand, our customers have access to an effective worldwide service organisation, offering services on a planned, on-demand and emergency basis," adds Mr Karlsson.
