Siwertell unloader for Mexican terminal

Siwertell unloader for Mexican terminal

(Posted on 04/11/19)

Bruks Siwertell has delivered a high-capacity Siwertell ship unloader to Gramosa Agroalimentos SA. It was ordered in 2018 to ensure efficient, environment-friendly and careful material handling for Gramosa Agroalimentos’s new agri-bulk terminal in Veracruz, Mexico.

“The unloader was chosen after out-performing all competitor systems during a four-month selection process,” highlighted Patrik Henryson, Sales Manager, Bruks Siwertell.

The new rail-mounted Siwertell ST 640-M unloader is totally-enclosed and offers the terminal a continuous rated capacity of 1,200t/h. Its seamless flexibility enables it to handle a number of different grains such as corn, rice, wheat, soya beans and canola seeds without any loss of efficiency or cargo quality.

At the time of the order, Gramosa Agroalimentos said that it chose a Siwertell unloader because of its performance across multiple grains: “Other systems on the market did not compare.

“The conveying speed of the Siwertell screw-type unloader means that the grain is not damaged during handling, which will give us added value and differentiate us from our competition,” said Gramosa Agroalimentos. “The Siwertell system was selected after considering many factors and multiple equipment comparisons. Analysis included operating principles and mechanisms, investment costs, as well as operating costs.”

The new unloader was delivered fully-assembled from China via heavy-lift ship in October 2019 and will be tested and commissioned on site in Veracruz Port by Bruks Siwertell when required.

Bruks Siwertell design, produce and deliver systems for loading, unloading, conveying, storing, and stacking and reclaiming dry bulk materials, alongside equipment for chipping, screening, milling and processing wood for the biofuel, board, saw mill, pulp and paper industries. All equipment is designed to ensure environmentally-friendly and efficient cargo operations.
