Cargotec Receives Significant Bulk Handling Orders
Cargotec's MacGREGOR business area providing marine cargo handling solutions has received orders for five bulk cargo loaders and unloaders. One of the systems will be manufactured in China and four in Europe. The bulk cargo systems will be delivered to customers during 2007-2008. The value of the received orders is approximately EUR 16 million. The orders have been booked in the final quarter of 2006.
The bulk cargo systems will be delivered to different bulk terminals in Europe, Africa and U.S.A. The terminal customers will handle either grain, alumina, cement or limestone with the systems. The delivered bulk cargo systems are of MacGREGOR's Siwertell model, which are efficient to use and environmentally friendly. Their totally closed conveying system limits the amount of cargo dust released into the air.
