PD Ports Shortlisted for Int’l Bulk Journal Awards

Thursday, October 15, 2009

PD Ports has been shortlisted for the International Bulk Journal Awards 2009, in the category of Best Ship Loading/Unloading System. The awards, which take place in Amsterdam on 23rd November, will see PD Ports compete against four other entries, which include U.S. construction company Agrico Sales and German mobile pneumatic conveyors manufacturer Neuero.  PD Ports is the only UK finalist in its category and has been shortlisted on the basis on the installation of the Siwertell equipment at Immingham.  

The Siwertell 5000s offers the bulk market an environmentally friendly solution for discharging dry bulk products such as cement, grain and fertilizers, due to its ability to minimize dust emissions.  This is achieved through the equipment’s totally enclosed conveying line.

The equipment currently operates from PD Ports’ Immingham facilities but is expected to be utilized at the group’s other port locations around the Humber Estuary at Howden and Keadby.
