Siwertell unloader for dust-free cement handling in Sweden

Siwertell unloader for dust-free cement handling in Sweden

(Posted on 15/02/22)

Bruks Siwertell has received an order from Swecem AB, a subsidiary of Peab Group’s Swerock, for a next-generation Siwertell road-mobile ship unloader. It will secure environment-friendly, dust-free material handling for the Merit producer and cement purchaser in the port of Helsingborg, Sweden.

“Environmental protection is a key consideration for Swecem’s operations and it adheres to very strict standards,” says Jörgen Ojeda, Sales Director Mobile Unloaders, Bruks Siwertell. “With this in mind, Swecem was looking for a ship unloading solution that could deliver continuously high through-ship capacities, but at the same time, ensure enclosed dry bulk material handling to minimize any environmental impact.

“This is also an important order because it is part of a growing picture that will see all operators taking more sustainable steps,” Ojeda continues. “Sweden has a mounting legislative drive to reduce the environmental impact of the country’s cement industry. However, the same industry has to maintain, and even exceed, current ship unloading capabilities to keep up with growth, posing a potential future gap in supply and demand. Our systems can, and will be, part of this positive change.“

Siwertell road-mobile unloaders deliver totally enclosed material handling from the ship’s hold to the receiving system, which minimizes dust emissions and eliminates spillage entirely. Furthermore, they have a dust filter installed at the top of the loading conveyor, creating negative pressure to minimize fugitive dust at transfer points. The filter automatically returns collected dust to the conveying system.

Road-mobile systems also offer a high degree of flexibility and can move from port to port, requiring minimal infrastructure. They have a worldwide reputation for reliability and efficiency.

“This was certainly a factor in the order, along with good feedback from other Siwertell ship unloader owners” notes Ojeda. “We also could offer a local presence, with offices close by for any through-life service support.”

Swecem’s new Siwertell 10 000 S next-generation road-mobile unit will have a continuous cement unloading capacity of 300t/h and is able to discharge vessels up to around 10,000 dwt. It will be delivered fully assembled to the operator’s import terminal in May 2022.
