Cargotec Wins Ship Unloader Contract

(Press Release)
Tuesday, November 29, 2011
Cargotec has won a significant order for two Siwertell ship unloaders to handle coal at Jorf Lasfar, on Morocco's Atlantic coast.  The contract comes from the Jorf Lasfar Energy Company (JLEC) and includes repositioning two existing unloaders as well as installing the two new Siwertell units when they are delivered in 2013. The unloaders will suit a new jetty belt conveyor system with an increased travelling length at the Jorf  Lasfar coal-fired power plant, which is undergoing major expansion. Each Siwertell type ST 940-DOB unit will have a coal-unloading capacity of 2,400t/h. 
"Cargotec's Siwertell system is technically superior to the other systems offered: it is more efficient and environmental friendly," says Bertil Andersson, Sales Manager, Bulk Terminals. "Cargotec is the only provider of this kind of  system with its performance proven by many references. In addition to technological advantages, Siwertell systems have a unique lightweight design offering weight-savings of more than 50 per cent in comparison with a corresponding bucket 
and chain type unloader". 
Cargotec has also just announced that its Siwertell Sulphur Safety System, known as the 4S has won the International Bulk Journal's Safety in Bulk Handling award. The system is designed to minimise the risk of explosions and detect fires  when handling sulfur.   One of the latest companies to benefit from this technology will be the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Ltd (IFFCO), Paradeep Unit, which has ordered an enclosed screw-type unloader to discharge rock phosphate and sulphur. The new  unit will be rated at a capacity of 1,800t/h and is planned for delivery in twelve months. The values of the Indian and the Moroccan contracts total approximately EUR 40m.
