Third Siwertell road mobile cement unloader order helps with Libyan reconstruction



The Turkish construction services company Mussa Insaat Dis Ticaret Ltd of Istanbul has ordered a further road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S cement unloader from Cargotec. The trailer based, diesel powered unit will have a rated discharge capacity of 300t/h and will be equipped with a dual bellows system and dust filter. Delivery is scheduled for the end of September 2014.

"This is the third road mobile cement unloader order for the same customer within a very short period," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director for Siwertell mobile unloaders. "It will take its place in our customer's cement unloading operations at several sites along the Libyan coast, helping to meet the demand for cement needed for the country's extensive rebuilding programmes. The customer ordered this third unloader to further strengthen its position on the Libyan market.

Siwertell mobile unloaders are ideal in these circumstances, because they have the flexibility to unload cement at the most convenient port for the work in hand, cutting road transportation to a minimum. Not only is a mobile unloader easy to move from one port to another but once at its new location, the unloader can be prepared for work very quickly by just one person.

"This repeat order indicates a very satisfied customer that appreciates the well known reliability of Siwertell mobile unloaders, along with their high unloading capacity and low operational and maintenance costs," adds Mr Ojeda.
