Siwertell receives a repeat order for road-mobile unloader in Kuwait
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 21 APRIL 2015, AT 10.30 AM (EEST)
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, will supply a second road-mobile unloader to Acico Construction Co in Kuwait. The company took delivery of its first mobile unit from Siwertell in July 2014, following earlier very positive experiences when operating Siwertell mobile unloaders.
"The growing numbers of satisfied customers placing repeat orders is a great confirmation of the high quality and efficiency of our unloading solutions," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile Unloaders, Siwertell. "With its growing experience of operating and owning our mobile unloaders, Acico fully appreciates their flexibility and high capacity. Combined with their low operational and maintenance costs, these factors had a major impact on Acico's decision to buy a second unloader."
The trailer-based, diesel-powered, Siwertell 10000 S road mobile unloader will be used at Shuaiba Port in Kuwait to discharge cement at 300t/h. It will be equipped with a double bellows system to allow continuous unloading operations, and a dust filter to minimise dust creation. Scheduled for delivery by the end of May 2015, the unit is under construction at Siwertell's manufacturing premises in Bjuv, Sweden.
Siwertell mobile unloaders were originally designed for handling cement, and their reliable, eco-friendly and durable qualities make them the natural first choice for the job. As they do not need any local civil engineering works, they feature immediate availability on delivery. Furthermore, Siwertell can offer short lead times, so the period between placing an order and going operational can be remarkably short.
Acico Construction, part of Acico Industries Company, was founded in 1990. 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.
