Siwertell technology ordered for enclosed cement handling in Adelaide

Siwertell technology ordered for enclosed cement handling in Adelaide

(Posted on 23/12/22)

Bruks Siwertell has received an order from Hallet Capital Pty Ltd for a Siwertell ship unloader. It will secure environment-friendly cement handling in the South Australian port of Adelaide.

“Hallet Capital is a new customer for us, and part of its decision to choose Siwertell technology was based on Bruks Siwertell’s extensive experience with other cement import terminals,” says Jan Karlsson, Sales Manager, APAC, Bruks Siwertell.

A gantry-mounted Siwertell 490 F-type unit has been ordered along with a jetty screw-conveyor system feeding a dome silo and individual screw conveyors for installation inside the dome.

“There were two main considerations for this contract,” notes Karlsson. “The first was environmental protection and the second was designing a system that could be moved away from the jetty when not discharging vessels, as the port of Adelaide does not allow any fixed installations to hinder other operations within the port. We were able to meet both.

“The ship unloader will be fitted with a rubber-tire wheelbase ensuring in-port mobility,” he explains. “Furthermore, the jetty conveyor system will be installed in a recess so that the jetty remains clear for other activities. The entire system, from material pick-up in the vessel’s hold to the dome silo, will be totally enclosed, providing a virtually dust-free operation in the port, with no spillage.”

The new Siwertell ship unloader will be suitable for discharging bulkers up to 40,000 dwt at a rated cement handling capacity of 500t/h. It is planned for delivery in August 2023 and will be assembled on site.
