Siwertell Ship Unloader Orders for Cargotec

Press Release
Monday, September 10, 2012

Cargotec has secured orders for three new mobile Siwertell ship unloaders for ports in Turkey, Denmark and Sweden.

The Siwertell road-mobile unloader enables clean, dust-free, handling of dry bulk material, and its minimal exhaust and sound emissions also means that it has the advantage of being able to be used in sensitive sites or those close to populated areas.

The first of these new orders has now been commissioned and sees a diesel-powered, trailer-based Siwertell 10 000 S unit with a dual bellows system and dust filters in operation for Muhammet Gümüstas, in Trabzon, Turkey. The new unit handles cement at a rated capacity of 300t/h.

Jörgen Ojeda, Cargotec Sales Director, explains: "The mobile Siwertell unloader was originally designed for handling cement, so it is naturally perfect for the job. With its enclosed conveying line, this system is also environmentally-friendly as it ensures dust-free and high-capacity unloading operations."

He adds, "A similar unit is due to be commissioned for Aalborg Portland in Aalborg, Denmark. It will handle fly ash at a rated capacity of 250t/h. For this installation, a mechanical solution was preferred by the client as it had to be smoothly integrated into an existing mechanical receiving system at the jetty."

The third order is for an electrically-powered, gantry-based, ATEX-classified Siwertell 15 000 S unit. It will be commissioned by the end of next year for Fortum Värme, which is co-owned by the City of Stockholm, Sweden.

It will be installed in Stockholm and has a rated capacity of 330t/h, handling biomass including olive kernels, wood pellets, and wood briquettes. It will also be equipped with tube sleeves and noise hoods to minimise noise pollution.
