Siwertell wins 'Best Ship Loading/Unloading System' industry award



For the second time, the IBJ awards panel has judged Siwertell ship loading and unloading systems to be the best on the market 

Cargotec's Siwertell brand has won the International Bulk Journal's 'Best Ship Loading/Unloading System' award for a second time. The award was announced at this year's IBJ Awards event on 18th November, in Paris.

"IBJ Awards highlight achievements in the maritime bulk industry, and to win this category, Siwertell has been judged to offer the most efficient, safe and innovative dry bulk cargo flow systems," says Per Karlsson, President, Cargotec Sweden Bulk Handling, responsible for the Siwertell brand. "Siwertell systems have excellent environmental credentials and winning the award for a second time further demonstrates all these excellent qualities.

"Siwertell ship unloaders, loaders and terminal systems easily meet and exceed all the requirements of an increasingly demanding industry, along with the regulations - local, national and international -that seek to deliver safe and environmentally-friendly operations," he says.

"At the same time, we are always exploring ways to develop new markets," adds Mr Karlsson. "For example, the versatility of Siwertell screw type unloaders means they are ideally suited to the rapidly expanding biomass market. This year Dong Energy, one of Northern Europe's largest energy groups, took delivery of a Siwertell type ST 790-D ship unloader for unloading wood pellets and coal, at a rated capacity of 800t/h, at its highly efficient combined heat and power station at Avedøre in Denmark. Handling coal and biomass with the same unloader delivers major operational and economic benefits, including reduced capital investment.

"We continue to explore new opportunities and refine and develop our product range to ensure that we maintain our market-leading position and offer the industry the best system that technology can deliver."
