Siwertell receives prestigious road mobile unloader order for cement operations in Saudi Arabia
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 30 MARCH 2015 AT 12 PM (EEST)
Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has received an order to supply a road mobile unloader to the cement division of the Rashed Al-Rashed & Sons Group in Saudi Arabia. The unloader has already been built at Siwertell AB's premises in Bjuv, Sweden, and delivery was carried out in March, just over two months after the order was placed.
The Siwertell diesel powered 5 000 S road mobile unloader is equipped with a dust filter and double bellows system to allow seamless, uninterrupted bulk material transfer to trucks or wagons. It will operate in the Port of Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, unloading white cement at 250 t/h.
Jörgen Ojeda, Director of Siwertell mobile unloaders, said the customer selected a screw-type road mobile unloader because it best suited the company's needs and chose a Siwertell unit because it is ranked the best among similar products.
"Siwertell's range of mobile unloaders has a number of advantages in addition to the obvious one of mobility," says Mr Ojeda. "They offer high capacity from a small footprint. Extremely clean operations result in an excellent working environment and no loss of material. Maintenance costs are low, while the continuous nature of screw-type unloading coupled with the double bellows system ensures excellent through-the-ship performance.
"Siwertell is very proud to have secured this order and started our co-operation with the well-known and distinguished company of Rashed Al-Rashed & Sons."
Siwertell has recently also secured an order for a 10 000 S road-mobile unloader to an undisclosed customer, which will be delivered to India at the end of April 2015.
