In-service performance secures new mobile Siwertell unloader contract
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 7 NOVEMBER 2013, AT 9 AM (EET)
UK company TAD Enterprises Ltd has signed a contract with Cargotec for the delivery of a Siwertell 5 000 S mobile unloader for cement-handling operations in the Black Sea port of Yeysk, south of Rostov, in Russia. Delivery is planned for February 2014 from Cargotec's production plant in Bjuv, Sweden.
"The new Siwertell unit will offer the company a flexible, low cost cement handling operation," says Jörgen Ojeda, Siwertell Sales Director. "TAD Enterprises currently employs a pneumatic mobile unloader, but is not happy with its performance. The company also expressed concerns about the level of maintenance that this type of unloading system demands.
"With more than 400 units put on the market since 1992, Siwertell unloading systems have proven themselves in service. This market-leading reputation for reliability and the support offered by Cargotec Sweden Bulk Handling were essential elements in securing this new contract," explains Mr Ojeda.
"Along with reliability, Siwertell mobile unloaders offer flexibility and high capacity bulk handling combined with low operational and maintenance costs; this also had a major impact on the client's decision."
The diesel-powered, trailer-based Siwertell 5 000 S system will be used to load trucks alongside the berth for further transportation by road. It will be fitted with a double-bellows system for handling cement continuously at a rated capacity of 300t/h. The unit will also have a dust filter system to ensure a low environmental impact.
